This Café Shop Helps Homeless People Get Jobs

Myths and misunderstandings about people who are homeless often get in the way of actually solving this problem. Many people just assume homelessness is the result of a person’s addiction or gambling problem, but the spectrum of causes goes well above and beyond that.
Others understand that homelessness is a complex matter, but have no idea where to start helping. Merely donating to a charity or giving money to a homeless person on the street is not an efficient solution, long-term.
What these people need is a chance to turn their lives around. They need to be able to start making a living so that they can ultimately support themselves and regain their independence. And the only way to achieve this is by getting and keeping a job.
Unfortunately, not many businesses are willing to give homeless people a chance. But things are slowly starting to change thanks to creative concepts like the one shown in the video below.
Social Bite is a small chain of Sandwich shops that exists for a social purpose, namely to give homeless people a job. But they are not only offering a job, they are offering them new purpose and a reason to wake up in the morning.
