Support Our Organization

Our organization has supplied work to over 20 million previously unemployed Americans. We have greatly helped these people by providing them with steady jobs that make it so they can put food on the table and provide for their families. We have given them new skills through a number of our programs that will make it so they can get new jobs in the future. Although, these are purely the physical ways in which we have assisted them, we have also done so much for them mentally. See before they were employed by us they were out of work struggling to make ends meet. Their self value was pretty low and they felt as if they had somehow failed, even though they were not to blame. By giving them work we have boosted their self esteem making it so they now feel as if they can once again rely on themselves. This means that they will be able to find new, non charity, jobs after they work with us. Therefore, even though our programs will cost the government more money than if we had just given money to the workers. In the long run our programs will greatly help the economy and the US population as a whole. They will also help many small towns because we have built work spaces on thousands of acres of federal land, hugely helping the small towns near by.
