Solutions for Change is dedicated to solving family homelessness permanently – one family, one community at a time -- by helping disadvantaged, underserved families break the cycle of poverty. They have a unique model that blends affordable housing, educational opportunities, employment training and health-related solutions to help families gain permanent independence. Using a 1,000-day personal development academy, Solutions for Change rewrites futures for homeless families through structured classes, counseling, and workforce training, giving them the tools needed to secure jobs and maintain self-sufficiency. Solutions for Change has established itself as a resource for the San Diego community, bringing over nineteen years of experience to solve the causal factors of our region’s most impoverished residents. In 2018, they served 209 families; 506 children and 226 adults. Of those families, 93% completed the first 500 days of the program, and of those, 99% completed the full 1,000-day program. These families graduate with stable housing, full-time employment, $2,000 in savings, and the knowledge needed for long-term resilience. Since 1999, Solutions has helped over 950 families and 2,400 children out of homeless. If you’d like to learn more, or help them make a difference through a gift, visit www.SolutionsForChange.org.
