Gorilla Marketing Provides Large Supply Donation to Homeless Shelter

RIVERSIDE - One organization can not do it alone, that is why High Desert Homeless Services (HDHS) depends on partnerships with other businesses, organizations, and even individuals to help. Our organization, of course, has an amazing staff,  but also part of our team are our volunteers, and donors.  It takes the assistance we get from businesses, churches, and individuals to help provide for the hundreds of homeless men, women, and children we serve each year. The clients at High Desert Homeless Services are not just provided with “bandaid” type solutions, but with the skills and support needed for permanent stability. In July, HDHS had the pleasure of meeting Chris Arranaga, the President of Gorilla Marketing in the City of Riverside. Without asking Arranaga for anything or even expressing our many needs, he extended a hand by offering High Desert Homeless Services a large trailer load of supplies, some which will help our clients go back to school or give them some of the things needed to seek employment. The items were picked up in late July, just in time for back-to-school preparations. Thank you Gorilla Marketing!  Gorilla Marketing provides creative promotional products to a variety of businesses based on their marketing needs. They are located at 4100 Flat Rock Drive in the City Riverside.

Why Are There Still So Many Unsheltered Homeless?

Untitled design (12).png

All too often those in any nonprofit sector are questioned and that is understood because at some point, we also may have asked the same questions. One of the major questions asked of those serving the homeless population is, if you are helping the homeless why are there so many homeless people still on the street? There is a valid answer to this, actually several and blame should not really fall anywhere; it is simply reality.

Mental health issues are prevalent in the San Bernardino County, and probably even more so in the High Desert. There is no particular reason why, but some these people possibly migrated here since there is more space to set up camp. Mental health can be very minor, with a lot of “regular” working people with families falling into that category. These people often function well in society and run into few difficulties and when they do, most seek professional help. There are others who fall into the moderate to the major mental health condition category. Some of these people are aware of their mental condition but once their medication begins to work they stop taking it because they feel that they are “better”. These people fail to realize not all medication makes you better, mental health medication simply balances and maintains. Others simply can not think clearly enough to know that a mental health condition exists.

When someone is mentally ill and they do not know a problem exists they can act in several different ways. Some of these people are suspicious and show signs of paranoia, others appear angry or aggressive, some forget or never knew they are worth a ‘normal’ life, some are happy being ‘free’, while others may act impulsively. A large group of these people become desperate to feel stable and self medicate using illegal drugs or alcohol. There is help for all of these groups, but not all want the help [yet] , some fear the help, and some are not ready to attempt to stop using drugs or alcohol. There are also a few ready to accept the help but navigating through the system without a lot of support proves to be just too much for him/her. To assist any homeless person, they must be a willing participant ready and able to take the first steps. The law prevents anyone from pulling a mentally ill person off the street for forced help besides for a 5150 hold (72-hour hold), which must be done by family, a boarding facility, law enforcement, or a mental health professional. A 5150 hold is designed to be used only when a person appears to be a danger to him/herself or others and the person is only held until he/she is stabilized. Once stabilized this person is sent back out and usually without support they discontinue the mood-stabilizing medications.

 

A portion of the unsheltered homeless have a substance use disorder. This is not necessarily something we need to blame on anything in particular. To attempt to solve any issue, blame should be put aside. This is not to say understanding or becoming knowledgeable about why these things happen is not productive. We already talked about impulsivity, this can be a result of multiple mental disorders. This can simply mean when someone else would possibly say “no” when offered alcohol or a drug, this person may say, “yes!  Why not?”  This is not a “bad” person, this person simply has a different thought process than some of us. Another path to addiction could be someone who suffers from major depression or another mental disorder leaving the person more often than not, feeling helpless, sad, alone or simply unstable. This person may or have may not have sought mental health care or medication, but most medications take weeks to work and some may require a change in dose or a change in type. Without constant support, a large portion of these people will feel it is too difficult and give up. The remaining feelings of helplessness or isolation can lead to the desperate measure of trying a substance to feel better for at least a short time. Drug users and alcoholics contrary to the belief of some, are not “bad” or “weak” people.

 

Of the homeless people you see on the street, a large portion are 290 registrants, meaning they committed a sexual crime (rape, child molestation, etc.). These people are difficult to place even after they served their time. Be honest, would you be thrilled to have one of these people move in next door to your family? Most would not, and the truth is a portion do reoffend. The rate is not as high as one would think, a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health concluded that the rate of recidivism is 10%-15% after five years, 20% after 10 years, and 30%-40% after 20 years. Most homeless shelters, due to the risk to other clients do not accept any sex offenders. There are organizations who will shelter and provide services to this group.

 

There is a small group who does not seek assistance and sometimes hides from the public because they are afraid to lose their child/children. These families sometimes live out of a vehicle or on the street in temperatures that in the High Desert can be extreme, 100-plus degrees in the summer and as low as 30-degrees in the winter. Homelessness alone is not a reason for a child to be removed from the custody of his/her/their parents. If the parents seek shelter for their child in a safe environment, like a homeless shelter Children and Family Services (CFS) will not intervene unless there are other major concerns (abuse, neglect, and/or parental substance abuse). Few do in fact, qfear losing their children only because of homelessness, but there are some. The majority of those living on the streets with their children do unfortunately fall into one of the other categories and are often already hiding from CFS.

One of the saddest categories, and again, this is a small percentage is those who are homeless with pets. Most homeless shelters, because of size and funding do not have the capability to house pets. High Desert Homeless Services works closely with local rescues in order to provide off-site fostering for the pet of the homeless person. The reason why the homeless person often does not accept the help in this case, is because they feel that the pet is all that they have. They grew to love their pet like a child, their best friend and in many cases their only support while on the cold, harsh, and sometimes dangerous streets.

 

Homelessness is never a cut and dry subject and there is never the same story for each homeless person. When you talk to a homeless person on the street you probably, just like speaking with anyone else you do not know will not get the exact truth but rather their interpretation. Also, some being in a desperate situation and seeking money, food, etc. may purposely mislead the person listening. If offered resources, some will willingly accept them and thank you, while others will say something like “they all turned me down” or “they are full” when it may not be the case. The best advice is to leave them with a resource list, a simple meal/snack, water, weather appropriate clothing, socks, and other basic needs. Some are not ready quite yet, but with gentle reminders that there are people who would like to help they may one day be prepared to accept that help.

Mojave Desert Animal Rescue Donates Water to Help the Homeless

Last week the Founder and Director of Mojave Desert Animal Rescue (MDAR) Annie Lancaster reached out to High Desert Homeless Services (HDHS) to ask if we could use bottled water. With water being one of the things that we can always use, we of course, said yes. On Monday, June 12, 2017, two volunteers with HDHS met with Annie to pick up the water. Annie mentioned to bring a truck, but we were pleasantly surprised when the donation filled up the bed of the truck. Thank you Annie Lancaster and MDAR for your generous support.

Spring Fun at the Shelter

Spring is in the air at High Desert Homeless Services.  Although our clients have entered the shelter as a result of  difficult and sometimes traumatic experience, we believe in giving them a little fun in the midst of daily shelter activities. Daily activities for adult clients includes intensive skill-building, job search, housing search, and many other activities. The children at the shelter go to school, most staying in the same school they were enrolled in prior to going to the shelter. Fun activities are included in the client’s 30-90 day stay at the shelter and holidays are celebrated with the help of local business and community support. On Monday, April 3rd clients were able to visit Circus Vargas, which was located in the City of Hesperia. Circus Vargas donated plenty of tickets for all of our clients to enjoy the fun.  Although, we still need a carpool van, we were able to use volunteer and other shelter vehicles. We were not going to allow our clients to miss this amazing event. The chatter and laughs among the clients, both children and adult showed how appreciated the experience really was. Volunteers and staff took hours of their time on Friday, April 14th and on Saturday, April 15th to prepare Easter baskets and stuff well over 500 eggs for the clients. We had pre-made baskets donated by Mary Jo Kirsch from Capstone Realty, MMEC, and several other private donors. HDHS staff and volunteers were able to add additional items to the baskets making them super amazing, thanks to the kind donations from business owners, and private donors. Easter Baskets may seem insignificant, but to these families it truly means a lot to know that their child(ren) will never go without while in transition.The donations also mean so much to HDHS staff and volunteers, who without the help of them would make doing these special events for the clients very difficult. On Saturday, April 15th 2017, the children living at the shelter received their age appropriate Easter Baskets and were extremely happy. Following the Easter baskets, the children (0-17 years old) were all given an Easter bucket for a very fun Easter Egg hunt, where just about each child ended up with a nice full bucket thanks to community generosity. Clients will have a special dinner on Easter Sunday.

Please Inform Us of Any  Questions and/or Concerns

We want our community to know that everyone in it is important to us. Your opinion does matter and we want you to know that if ever there is a problem or concern please never hesitate to ask. Everything that we do at HDHS is what we feel is in the best interest of each and every client. This model has helped so many of our clients who have completed our program to leave the shelter and find permanent housing.

Please take a moment to complete our survey here:  https://goo.gl/2OxzJZ

If you know of low-cost housing, have a place to rent with lenient credit/eviction qualifications, or any other special programs please feel free to email these to our Executive Director Jimmy Waldron at jimmy.waldron@yahoo.com. We appreciate your help very much.

HDHS Homeless Shelter Needs

  People always ask us what we need at the shelter. As I am sure you can imagine, housing 55 clients, comprising of men, women and children is not always an easy task. Shelter staff and volunteers are people who have an interest for helping those in need, so the labor and administrative part is something they are more than willing to do. The costs are high, so financial contributions are always welcomed and appreciated. These financial contributions can help us with the high bills associated with providing for all of our client’s needs during their stay.   Even the smallest donations can make a big difference so don’t be shy to donate what you are comfortable with. We also can always use things like paper towels, toilet paper, bleach, 30+ gallon trash bags, and other cleaning products/essentials.   We appreciate all donations of gently used items. We would like to kindly ask that the community does not donate broken furniture, toys or clothing with holes and stains.  As far as donations, they go to our clients first, some help the homeless who are temporarily living on the street,  and other items go to for sale to help us to pay expenses to keep the shelter running. It is a big task, but with your help we can work to first keep up with our high expenses and then to eventually move on to a larger location so that we can serve more. Last but certainly not least, we are in need of a good running 15-passenger van to transport our clients to job interviews, work, or other important appointments. We would also be able to use this van to pick up those who need shelter and have no transportation. If you have one to donate, please consider HDHS. If you know where we can purchase one at a very low price also, please let us know. We are working hard to raise enough money to make this purchase to better serve our clients and our community. *Donation Receipts are Available

 

People always ask us what we need at the shelter. As I am sure you can imagine, housing 55 clients, comprising of men, women and children is not always an easy task. Shelter staff and volunteers are people who have an interest for helping those in need, so the labor and administrative part is something they are more than willing to do. The costs are high, so financial contributions are always welcomed and appreciated. These financial contributions can help us with the high bills associated with providing for all of our client’s needs during their stay.

 

Even the smallest donations can make a big difference so don’t be shy to donate what you are comfortable with. We also can always use things like paper towels, toilet paper, bleach, 30+ gallon trash bags, and other cleaning products/essentials.

 

We appreciate all donations of gently used items.

If anyone has anything that they would like to donate, including bottled waters, sliced bread, sandwich meat, sliced cheese, cookies, chips, baggies, and lunch bags we would appreciate your help very much. Another big need for those living in the streets during are flip flop type shoes, good condition tennis shoes (especially mens 11 and up), socks, band aids, and neosporin or other antibacterial ointment. We want to help ensure, with the help of many other great organizations, that all of the homeless individuals that remain on the streets have been offered all of the resources available to them. Donations can be taken to the shelter office, located at 14049 Amargosa Road in the City of Victorville. Don’t forget to ask us for a donation receipt if needed.
