Spokane dog trning club offers puppies to the homeless

By Nevin Martell - April 1, 2016

When he looks in the mirror, he sees what he used to.

“I’m a bit of an introvert. My dad is an introvert,” he sd. “My family is kind of introverted. I have a few trts, like it makes me a little quiet. But I’m not quiet. My voice is loud. I’m a firm voice. I can talk a lot.”

Lance Smith has had mental health challenges for years.

As a child, he didn’t feel like he fit in and was bullied. In junior high, he was asked if he was gay and when he sd yes, he was teased for being a sissy.

He was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder in 2013. He went through a hard time and a lot of medication that changed him. Now, he has had some treatment and is ready to go back to work.

He has found a place for now, but he has had trouble getting into a mental health program in Spokane. When he goes back to the one he just left, it will take six months for a placement.

When that time comes, he is looking for a home.

He knows how to be homeless, but that’s not a life for him. He wants to get back to normal.

He sd his life wasn’t that bad until it started when he was 18 and didn’t know what to do. A friend told him that if he wanted to get out of homelessness, he needed to find a job.

With a friend’s help, he got into a program where he learned how to be homeless. It helped him get out of his shell.

In March 2015, Smith began working with a local group called the Homeless Action Center, where he was trned to work with others on the streets and in the group homes.

He learned how to clean up the community and to be respectful and how to deal with police. He learned about safety and survival. He learned how to deal with others.

He has worked at the place for almost a year. The staff know him and he knows them. He takes a pride in helping others and has made a lot of friends.

Smith sd the job really changed him. Now, he is trying to find a way to get into the program to go to school to be a counselor. He has been applying to universities, but hasn’t had success.

He sd people can see the difference from him to before he started working at the shelter. He sd he is just a regular person now.

“Once you get out of that place, they give you a new outlook on life,” he sd. “And it’s amazing how you change people’s lives.”

Safeway

The Safeway in downtown Bismarck is the place to shop for those in need of fresh food.

It is a drive to access this shopping opportunity is not easy, however. For many, navigating through the throngs of homeless that are here means a hike over many blocks.

Many shoppers say that they come in just to say hello to the new people they see at Safeway, and it’s those people that end up helping them purchase food.

The Safeway food-shopping experience also includes the opportunity for shoppers to make charitable contributions. Food from Safeway will be donated to the Downtown Community Assistance Ministries in Bismarck and is also sent to Second Harvest in Mandan.

Taco Mac

The Taco Mac in downtown Bismarck is a place to enjoy a meal that has been specially prepared with leftovers from the restaurant.

A donation is taken at the door that benefits the Homeless Shelter and the Downtown Community Assistance Ministries.

The donation comes in the form of leftover food that is donated by the restaurant.

“They know what the homeless population is out there looking for,” sd Janie, who has worked at the Downtown Community Assistance Ministries for three years. “We’re here to help with food, clothing and other needs.”

Taco Mac doesn’t take reservations, so it can be difficult to get an immediate table. If you show up, you may get a long wt.

It also depends on what day of the week it is. The taco night Tuesday, for example, sees a greater number of customers than any other time of the week.

Taco Mac is the only restaurant in Bismarck that serves a donation night.

Carnitas

At the carnitas night at the Carnitas restaurant on 11th Street, diners can make a donation to support the Downtown Community Assistance Ministries.

“We’re here to feed them,” sd Carnitas owner Roberto Sanchez. “They have good food.”

Sanchez sd it’s not just the homeless, but everyone who needs a free meal.

“A lot of people come in here that don’t have money,” he sd. “We just take care of them.”

Customers who make donations are welcomed.

“We have people that come in here and say, ‘I’m in a bad way,’ ” Sanchez sd. “They don’t want to say it to your face, but they’ll just say it here.”

This past Friday, the restaurant received its largest donation yet: 80 pounds of pork shoulder.

“It’s almost gone,” sd Sanchez.

Carnitas has seen an uptick in donations recently as the weather has begun to warm up and the weather has improved. The restaurant is known for its delicious pork products.

“We do a lot of business with people who are homeless,” sd Sanchez. “I’ve been here all my life, and I can tell you that people come in here and just don’t have money. They come in here for a meal and they leave with a lot of food.”

The restaurant will donate at least 80 pounds of its best product to feed the homeless in the Bismarck area.

Tuna, Cheese, Chips and Pico

For the third year in a row, Bismarck’s Carnitas Cantina will be a part of the “America’s Basket” fundrser. All proceeds from Carnitas Cantina’s booth will be donated to the Bismarck Community Food Bank.
