Since 2013, Veterans Project & The Family Assistance Campaign has provided free food assistance to more than 20,000 Veterans and their family members, distributing 445,000 lbs. of food. Feed Our Vets mission is to help Veterans in the United States, their spouses and children, whose circumstances have left them on the battlefield of hunger, and to involve the public in fighting Veteran hunger, through: (1) Community food pantries that provide regular, free food to Veterans and their families, (2) Distribution of related goods and services, (3) Public education and outreach.

Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment
and the other by acts of love. Power based on love
is a thousand times more effective and permanent
then the one derived from fear of punishment.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

to meet the challenges of our times

to meet the challenges of our times
You have a right to live. You have a right to be. You have these rights regardless of money, health, social status, or class. You have these rights, man, woman, or child. These rights can never be taken away from you, they can only be infringed. When someone violates your rights, remember, it is not your fault.,I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for one self, one's own family or one's nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace

Mobile homelessness Mobile homelessness may be the fastest growing poverty demographic in America today. People lose their job, then their apartment, and do everything they can to keep their vehicle. In most communities it's actually illegal to sleep in a car or RV, making the life of a mobile homeless person even harder.The North Face Snow Leopard 0 Degree Sleeping Bag Regular In Size: (Google Affiliate Ad) I have been in meetings in Los Angeles where all the stakeholders were concerned, yet no one would step up to allow mobile homeless to park on their property. Michelle and her kids live in this RV As many of you know I have been around the country a few times. The "Overnight Parking Program" run by St. Vincent de Paul in Lane County is the only mobile homeless services program I have seen or even heard of to date. I am sure there are others, so if you know of one please comment below.

What I didn't know until this interview is they partner businesses who have land or parking space with responsible homeless people for security. That is AWESOME! Business get free security and our homeless friends get a place to park where they won't be bothered.
