    One of our guys has been using a dremel tool to carve designs in a walking stick and hatchets / tomahawk. This is just one of the things we've been teaching these folks to do to earn a little money rather than beg on the street corners. Cris is really getting good at this. We are super proud him and the others as we teach them new ways to live.

    Marc, he got the tomahawk heads at Amazon. Look up Cold Steel Pipe Hawk. And he also got the husquvarna hatchet at Amazon. The other one I am not sure where he got it.

    Awesome. I'm new here, so I'm unfamiliar with the program these guys are participating in but it sounds like a great cause and looks like they're doing a great job.

    We are working towards creating a community in Southern Colorado to house the homeless and to restore their dignity and help them rebuild their lives. Many are what it termed, "Chronically Homeless". These tend to be the aged, the handicapped, the mentally handicapped, etc. Many of the folks we are working with have been homeless for several years and once someone has been in such an environment for that length of time, there is little hope that they would ever make it on their own in our society. That's where we step in and create both a sense of purpose for them but also a family where they can assimilate and find their sense of self worth, dignity, etc. And thus far we're having great successes even though there is a lot of opposition from certain entities. Thank you for asking about what we are doing.
