STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

""If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime." Chinese ProverbSWLA Homes of Hope believes there is much truth in that old Chinese proverb. It is better to teach someone how to do something than to do it for them. Giving someone a fish is good for the short term, but it is better to teach them how to do it, so that in the long term they can take care of themselves.
 
That is what we do at SWLA Homes of Hope!"
