“Helping the Homeless step by step” Reach 4 Salem is a registered nonprofit corporation RN: 679270-96  IRS EIN: 01-0964720 Solutions to help the homeless

“Helping the Homeless step by step”

Living In A Fourth World  Each year you see more Homeless. How many times has the donation dollar really help a Homeless Veteran or any Homeless from receiving the help they need to overcome the reason why they are homeless in the first place? Shelters and Missions are good for 60 days and then you’re on your own. The definition of a Homeless person is; vagabond, vagrant, drifter, beggar, hobo, bum, tramp, disgraceful and homeless.Human beings are forced to live below animal standards, because the needs of a human are far greater then that of an animal. The Homeless do not live in a third world; they live in a “fourth world”, inside the United States of America. A third world nation allows the poor to live in their  shacks. How could anybody with one or two sets of clothing, shoes with no transportation and facilities, no free place to sleep, be expected to keep clean and find a job?  Each year you see more Homeless. How many times has the donation dollar really help a Homeless Veteran or any Homeless person from receiving the help they need to overcome the reason why they are homeless in the first place? The Homeless deserve a chance to become stable and, employed. The Homeless should have a place to live in each city with the minimum needs of a human, to camp harassment free. The Homeless should have the right to work, that can or will work. Without transportation provided by the City busses, during the hours of swing, graveyard sifts and, weekends the chances are very slim without transportation to get any type of interview or job that becomes available.   Most of the Homeless Men and Woman have mental issues that keep them from getting a job and, they should be evaluated by a State agency or Private sector to determine the Homeless person’s state of mind. These issues should include Mental, Physical, dependency of alcohol, legal prescription and, illegal drugs.   I believe 90 per cent of the Homeless have a disorder of some sort that keeps them from finding work. I believe every person should have a place of their own to call home, free from City and State Ordnance. We are the first nonprofit, to design a way to help with the burden of the Homeless in cities, business and homeowners. The idea involves an invitation to the Homeless, to better their self through pride, encouragement, food, shelter, and relaxation for the day, through the word of mouth.  We will not force anybody to attend meetings or stop any habit they may have. Our goal is to show it’s possible for them to become a working class member of society if they want it.  Looking for help to land a job requires training. Training requires self confidence, mentally and physically. Self confidence requires knowledge, clothing, appearance, food, housing, transportation and support groups. All help must be located in one place in order for the client to focus. Sometimes, adjusting back to "normal" life again can bring countless challenges.  


There would be no competition to compete with Reach 4 Salem. As a Corporation, an umbrella of businesses will be formed to employ the Homeless with the tools needed and training to run a LLC Business with a paid income.

According to a PBS broadcast, the taxpayer pays $200,000 per Homeless person in medical bills in the expansion of eighteen months. The Burdon of Tax Payers, Police, Courts and, County Housing will be cut drastically. Helping the Homeless step by step will, Reach 4 Salem, Keizer and the surrounding communities. Each Homeless person cost the tax payer a lot more than $200,000 Reach 4 Salem must get started to get our Homeless back to work.

          We need your experience in getting started

1. We need God our Lord Christ 2. We need to know that He created us in His own image 3. We need two commandments that cover all---Love thy God with all our might and Love thy neighbor as thy self 4.We need to give in order to receive 5.We need to overcome the world 6. We need to ask Jesus into our life.

 in response to rocker1...   I am sorry rocker1, I know of no other church in Utah that has the funds that can help you. I am not Mormon but know people who are and in Utah somehow once in a while they get help from the bishops there for food. I know they help people and offered to help me if I go to the church once. I am working part time and had not made the time. You have to make the choice be active in the church and get help. I wish I could help and to find work I go to,,, pennysaver and free classifieds and look, apply like crazy...I wish it was easier and so sorry I can't help more   God Bless

One of the first things that you should do is check your state's website.  Some states (and more local areas) have implemented grant programs to help improve the economy in their local area(s).

Probably the most simplest way to go about it is to just start looking online for grant programs relating to what it is that you want to do.  You have to realize that there is no one place that could possibly list all the current grant programs because they are constantly changing.

Another important thing is to specify what you want the grant for.  You can go to the official government website to see what kind of grant programs that they have for for-profit businesses.

Also realize too that it is not only the government that has grant programs.  There are other entities outside of the government realm (like foundations and other organizations) that have grant programs as well.

Another thing that you may want to consider is to be a sub-contractor for the government - in other words you provide products and services to the government - it's like they are hiring you to work for them.

You can also find out more about this by going to their official website as well.

Hello aidmates, came across interesting information today.........

Gotu kola herb

The human brain looses 5-10% of its weight beginning from age 20yrs. However, recent studies have shown that the brain can grow new cells and putting back the growth factors that decline with age is the best way to slow down the shrinking brain.

Forms of Gotu kola

1. Extract you can 10 drops a day

2. Dried herb, can be used for making tea

3. Powdered herb (available in capsules)

Hi Schmidty,

In California it is called In Home Services.  Your doctor has to sign papers stating that you need help in order to stay in your home.  A nurse who acts as a social worker comes out to your home and goes over every little thing that you need help with and ask exactly how long each need takes.  

Say if you are on oxygen and the caretaker has to clean the machine, change hose, clean filters, they want to know to the minute of how long it takes.  They will add all your needs up time wise, and give you so many hours.

They ask if you would like to interview someone from a list they have or if you have someone in mind.  The person now has to be fingerprinted, background checked, (just recently this has taken place) and file papers with Social Services.

Infact, you can look up on line your state gov. and In Home Services should be an option you can access and get info on.

Good Luck,

Talk to Starshine

Thinking about the 2 guys my hubby and me overheard talking today. One was griping about how far he had to drive to work. One was griping about having to lift things so much. The one that had to drive so far was complaining that they didn't give him a gas allowance to get there, just his 25 dollars an hour (WHAT! ) . The one who didn't like the lifting, was talking about how, his company did pay him when he traveled, but he was tired of their crap, he was only payed a measly 19 dollars an hour(WHAT!)

Lets stop right there! Can anyone divide my 7.25 into those!????? hahaha. I am so grateful for my job, I can't stand it! I wish I would have said something. But it probably would have come out wrong. lol The moral of the story, Be grateful for what I have, no matter what it is, it could be gone tomorrow! The Lord teaches me something every day. I hope I don't miss a thing he tries to tell me. Lord open my ears so I can hear you every time you speak! God Bless You All! The Lord has truly blessed me, and I wish the rest of you the same!
