Overcome Being Poor or Homeless
is a book of wisdom, hope and inspiration for the poor and the homeless everywhere. Everyone receiving any form of public welfare should read this book. It will help you overcome being poor or homeless.
Every year government, foundation and nonprofit agencies commit billions of dollars and thousands of employees to help the poor and the homeless in America. This book inspires your clients to do their part. It teaches them the facts, attitudes and behaviors they need to overcome being poor or homeless. If you are not aware of an option that is available to you, do you have a real choice about it? After reading this book, your clients will become conscious of many more choices they have for success. This book confronts poor people with a real choice about their own participation in their own poverty. Overcome Being Poor or Homeless will help you help your clients to help themselves.
“If you are one of the millions of people in America receiving public charity, please remember something,” says Roland Gilbert. “It is not your fault, but it is your responsibility to do your part to help yourself—if you choose to. I love you.” Please give this book to any poor person you know. It will transport them from a Culture of Poverty into a Culture of Success. I wrote this book to the poor in America, to the Philanthropy Industry, with $316 billion spent in 2012 and more than 9.4 million employed, and to the Social Services Industry spending billions of dollars annually throughout the United States and employing millions of people. It is time to learn, change, and grow because what you have been doing is not eliminating poverty—but making it an industry—because of your Philanthropic Colonialism. We will never eliminate poverty and homelessness in America until we are willing to learn, change, and grow. The 3 major reasons we fail are: 1. We separate poverty from homelessness. 2. We do not see, nor understand, that poverty is a culture. 3. All of our Philanthropic and Social Services Models are based upon Rational Choice Theory and Cognitive Dissonance Theory—both of these theories do not include, nor recognize, that poverty is a culture. Therefore, mental illness and case management has become the modern plantation for the poor and uneducated. There is no shame in being born into poverty. The shame is that we have an American Poverty Industry built upon Philanthropic Colonialism that perpetuates multi-generational poverty. Poor people and homeless people love my books and workshops so much because my books and workshops transport them from a Culture of Poverty into a Culture of Success.
