As of April 23, we have had two meetings with potential Candidate providers for RSC to evaluate and see if RSC can accept them into the Second Chance Entrepreneurial Program©. Some things worth sharing.
Our first meeting was with a drug addiction care center in Orlando, FL. To say the least, it was an eye opener. I’m not sure any TV or any news reporting of the problem does it justice and describes the true magnitude of the problem. Everyone should, if they have the chance, visit a drug addiction facility, see for themselves and realize that this area of our lives deserves more than just casual attention.
Our second visit was to a homeless shelter located in Winter Haven, FL. The shelter is Christian-based, and is run by some of the most dedicated and knowledgeable people you could meet. Our visit saw almost busy-airport-style activity, with so many people doing so many things, operating in completely different aspects of taking care of the homeless they provide services for. What’s unique about this facility and the people running it is they actually try to take the extra step and try to develop and give their visitors a reason to be better. They try to show how faith plays an important role in them getting better, and whether you have religious beliefs or not, it is an incredibly impressive program. This is a group of people who are doing much more than they have to, to make their community better.
We hope to be working with both groups in the near future.
