Change 4 Real Change is a program just launched in Concord, CA.
The City of Concord recognizes that a majority of the public sympathizes with the plight of the homeless, but unfortunately, the most common practice of giving money directly to the homeless does not guarantee its best use.
In response to the growing number of homeless in Concord, the City has embarked on a new program to assist this population and decrease its social consequences.
The program, “Change 4 Real Change” employs a number of strategies that will allow the caring public to give aid to the homeless population in a more productive and effective manner… through direct contributions to social service organizations that specialize in helping the homeless and through the use of a voucher system
