Better Way To Give

A Better Way to Give

A better way to give meters

The Pensacola Chamber Foundation’s Leadership Pensacola (LeaP) Class of 2016 has launched A Better Way to Give, a class project where uniquely painted parking meters have been placed at intersections throughout downtown Pensacola. The mission is to dramatically improve the lives of the homeless in Pensacola. The better we can educate the public about the faces of homelessness and coordination of resources, the more successful our community will be at offering individuals, children, and families the help they need for real change. The EscaRosa Coalition for the Homeless has been selected as the Better Way to give fiscal agent and management organization for the project.

Our Goals:

Raise awareness about the true nature of homelessness

Establish a better way to fund programs that truly help the homeless

Guide public giving toward this resource and away from panhandlers
