Finding help

I love being able to help people!  It honestly even helps me to help myself.  One project I plan to work on is to develop a list and database of resources.  This will include not just organizations that help the homeless and low-income, but services also.  Things like health care and auto service are needed.  Office supplies for job interviews and planning calendars for building a structured life.  I will go forward to places to ask for their help–if they will consider helping the homeless by offering discounts, or even donating.  I already got a free eye exam with all services included and eyeglasses for 20 homeless people!  It felt great to arrange that!!!  But now I want more–I want to build a bigger foundation for help and resources.  This will take time, especially since I have no income or transportation to meet managers of businesses face-to-face.  Email will help, but I figure in person is the best way to approach.

Please, if you know someone in any service area who may be willing to help by offering discounts to the homeless, either unlimited or a limited number or schedule, a one-time-only arrangement, or anything, please email me at padschicago@aol.com.  I greatly appreciate the help!  Thank you!
