Helping end panhandling through employment

The “A Better Way” program gets panhandlers off the streets to work for actual cash. At least once a week, they look for people begging for money and employ them to help clean and beautify the city for the day. They receive cash, food and services for their help, and the effort is getting panhandlers to evolve into employable individuals once again. It’s a win-win!
