At one of our recent meetings we discussed how to answer this very important question - Are we enabling them? This is something we are asked frequently enough that we deemed it important to try and find a short, succinct answer. Yet, it also needs to be a valid, truthful answer – not one filled with cliché or fluffy talk. What we came up with was this; At the end of the day they’re still going to be homeless, and possibly using, and have many unresolved issues, whether we deliver them that bagged lunch or not. That being said, at the end of the day they’re still people, the same as you and I. What we do isn’t just handing them stuff, we do so much more. We are giving them something they don’t get very often, and that is love and a little piece of hope. We are showing them that they are loved, by someone, when they feel the most unloved. We are showing them that there are people out there still willing to offer some hope for a better life, when they feel the most hopeless. That’s what R.O.C.K. Missions is all about. We’re going to them and offering them the opportunity to make a move they might not make on their own. When everyone else might be seeing our friends are lesser than or unworthy, we want to encourage everyone to see them as what they really are – people. Human beings, albeit broken, but human beings none-the-less. Once you get there, and decide you want to help (because being kind costs NOTHING), come join us. We are making a difference!
