I would like to thank David Arreola from bleacher report for suggesting the Donald Driver foundation.
"The foundation's goal is to help change homeless family and education issues each day with STRONG HANDS that build and strengthen instead of destroy and weaken, with STRONG MINDS that invent new ideas to achieve these goals, and with LOVING HEARTS that overflow with love and compassion."
It is our belief that the state of homeless families and lack of education is an issue that is very overwhelming in America's society. In a world where we continue to make new strides to achieve the unachievable, homeless families and lack of education is an issue that America has yet to surmount.
In order for this condition to be addressed, we must stand up and accept that homelessness is an individual problem, not just America's problem, and that the education system is something we are all responsible for.
We must try to tackle these situations head on. In America, we all dream of achieving home ownership and graduating from school, yet many Americans have their dreams dashed with despair.
The Donald Driver Foundation understands that by accepting the challenge of homeless families and lack of education, we can take steps in minimizing this huge crisis.
The motto "Strong Hands, Strong Minds, Loving Hearts" encompasses that; with all of these elements, we will make a difference in this matter. Through donations and various service projects, as well as social activities, we will establish a high standard in the Houston and Green Bay areas.
The objectives of the Donald Driver Foundation are to:
Raise, broaden, and deepen the level of understanding of homeless families.
Eliminate the issue of homelessness one family at a time.
Become aware of the multiple roles of single parent families.
Encourage individual and group involvement in helping homeless families make the transition from being dependent to independent.
Provide opportunities for decision-making and for assuming responsibilities.
Provide assistance programs in promoting a greater understanding of the crisis.
Provide services to our schools, community, and shelters as the need occurs.
