Real Change Movement

Real Change Movement Web

The Real Change Movement is an innovative partnership between the business community, the public sector and nonprofits that has created a simple way for each individual to play a part in ending homelessness. This campaign created a special public donation meters program, with 100% of the funds going to comprehensive homeless services that provide proven methods to break out of the cycle of dependency of living on the streets. The Real Change Movement also includes a public education component that raises awareness about the issue of homelessness and informs people about more effective ways to support those in need. This campaign aims to harness the power of our community and is a collaborative effort of the City of Pasadena, Flintridge Center, Business Improvement Districts, the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, Art Center College of Design, United Way of Greater Los Angeles, and East West Bank. Look for the bright orange donations meters and help spread the message about the Real Change Movement!
