2013 Annual Report
2 The Grand Opening of Vista Terrace
2013 marked the completion and grand opening of our Vista Terrace apartments.
Nestled in the city of Vista, this complex was a result of a public-private partnership
that allowed Solutions to turn a worn-down complex into a thriving center of
supportive housing for 47 deserving families.
3 Record Breaking Growth
Thanks to the opening of Vista Terrace, Solutions was able to expand its offerings to
57% more families. This expansion makes 2013 the single largest year of growth the
organization has ever seen. Being able to house significantly more families means
that even more can begin their journey out of homelessness.
4 An Evening to Remember
Our annual gala, An Evening to Remember…with Mrs. Laura Bush, rallied more
than 800 people around our vision and raised more than $1.25 million to help solve
family homelessness. One of the most beloved and admired American First Ladies,
Mrs. Bush, praised Solutions’ “strategic thinking” in making education and other
services a priority for its homeless families.
5 Largest Graduation to Date
We began 2013 with the mantra “More.Better.Faster.”. We would better equip families
with the educational, employment and health resources needed to address and solve
the root causes of their homelessness so that they could remain housed. And we would
do all of this faster than we’ve ever done before. We’re happy to report that this feat has
been accomplished. How did this happen? We believe that it is because of our people.
Solutions for Change has the best people to champion and invest in our vision, the best
employees to deliver our programs, and the best leaders in our communities who see a
new way and a new design. Because these people are so good and because they are so
committed, we are delivering record numbers of families out of homelessness and back
into our society, equipped, housed and transformed.
Make no mistake, if you are involved in Solutions for Change you
are involved in an ever-growing and evolving transformative effort.
Some call it a movement, others an imperative. But for our families,
it is a deeply personal, life-changing experience.
1 A Historic Proclamation
In April, we received a critical showing of support for the Solutions model through
the historic signing of a first-ever 5-mayor Proclamation from the mayors of Carlsbad,
Escondido, Oceanside, San Marcos and Vista. The Proclamation recognizes the
imperative to solve family homelessness and outlines the cities’ desire to scale the
Solutions model within their own communities.
In September of 2013, we celebrated our largest graduation yet with a total of 20
graduates and commencees. The ceremony honored the hard work of families
reaching the midpoint of the program, as well as those successfully completing the
full 1,000-day program.
6 A Happy Place for Our Children
We swung open the doors on our new Child and Youth Center, a space dedicated to
our Solutions kids, now located adjacent to our main campus. Our parents love the
new accessible location and our kids are overjoyed by their access to the Solutions
7 Servant Leadership Culture
We continue to invest heavily in our residents and our staff, providing coaching in
Servant Leadership - an organizational, management and life philosophy that is
incorporated into our Teen Leadership Summit, into over 2,000 hours of resident
coursework, and into monthly staff meetings throughout the year.

2013 Highlights
Dear Friends and Supporters,
It has been a year of excitement at Solutions for Change, with dreams fulfilled and even more possibilities on the
horizon. For that, we have you to thank. Together, as we forge new ground, try new approaches and fearlessly move
forward with innovative ways to solve family homelessness, we are reaching and rebuilding hundreds of lives. And we
are doing so in vastly different ways than ever before.
Together, we’re delivering a 1,000-day program that moves families from dependence on government aid to selfsufficiency. We’re renovating worn-down apartments into award-winning housing communities. And we’re building
and operating a world-class aquaponics farming social enterprise. These are all initiatives that push conventional
boundaries. But this is who we are. We are Solutions for Change and this is what we must do in our pursuit to uncover
and discover the long-term solutions that families and communities need to defeat homelessness. Underpinning it all is
a culture of servant leadership, serving for the sake of others for the sole purpose of solving family homelessness.
As you read this report and reflect on your time with Solutions this past year, we hope you’ll see the results of our
work together. We hope you’ll enjoy seeing the impact numbers and reading the stories of complete transformation that
you’ve helped make possible. And most importantly, we hope this report will give you a sense of how profoundly you
are effecting this change by digging deeper and addressing the root causes of our families’ homelessness. We think that
anything else merely contains, enables, and eventually grows homelessness and poverty.
Solving family homelessness must be about equipping people with the skills, knowledge and resources needed to
move from being revenue users to revenue producers. We think that the families we serve should start returning money
to the system as taxpayers, eventually cancelling out what was invested in their re-housing and rehabilitation, and
winding up as net contributors. It is a big goal, we know, but that is the expedition we are on and this is what you are
supporting when you underwrite a future for a family, champion Solutions at your church or business, or invite your
friends to An Evening to Remember.
If you think the lives that have been transformed in 2013 are big, we can’t wait for you to see what’s next!

The Breen Family Story
Lucy can hardly express just how much Solutions for Change has meant to her and
her daughters. “We are overwhelmed with gratitude at what this program and
its supporters have done for us.” That support came just as Lucy was undergoing
the hardest year of her life.
Many people think of homelessness as a result of generational poverty, drugs, or
addiction. Lucy’s story doesn’t fit into that mold, coming from a background
not too different from those who are employed, housed and financially
secure. “We were well-off,” she says. “My kids were spoiled. They wanted for
nothing, and we lived on an acre of property outside of Scottsdale. It was a really
comfortable life.”
She and her husband owned a successful construction company that seemed
to defy the odds, even during the worst parts of the recession. While their
competitors were going under, they were thriving. It seemed too good to be true.
All that changed when her husband started using drugs. Lucy tried to hide it
from their five girls, but ultimately the addiction got out of control and they
were forced to leave. “I picked up a U-Haul, loaded all our stuff, and got out,”
she says.
She found temporary refuge with family in San Diego. When staying with them
was no longer possible, Lucy was at a loss. After running out of options, she
and the girls drove down to the beach and stayed in their car. They even
found a surfboard and tried to pass the time off as a “Surf Safari”, a true
California adventure. Inside, Lucy was panicking.
“If it was just me, I would be fine. But I had the girls. And I was
desperate for a real solution.” She researched homeless services and
found Solutions for Change. She immediately called and the family
entered the program a few weeks later.
The day they arrived at Solutions’ Intake and Access Center (IAC), Lucy remembers she could finally breathe again. Her girls had a bed to sleep in and a roof over their head. When she
found out they would be fed as well, she didn’t know what to do with herself. “I was ecstatic,” she said. “I could finally stop worrying about where we would stay and what
we would eat, and instead focus on building our future.”
After months in the IAC, a spot opened up at the Solutions main campus, giving the family a comfortable home with ample room. Thanks to Solutions’ Workforce Development Program,
Lucy found work in a sales role, which she “absolutely loves”. She regularly attends classes at Solutions, which include parenting, servant leadership and co-dependency courses.
She also has access to one-on-one counseling, which has been a much-needed support for her journey. “The classes and counseling have helped me understand why I was
allowing what I was allowing for so long,” she says. “An understanding which will prevent me from ever letting it happen again.”
The lessons she’s learned at Solutions are lessons that Lucy has passed on to her girls. “I never want them to go through the same thing I did,” she says. “I tell them everything so that
they can learn from my mistakes and grow to be strong, independent women.”
As for the challenges of the past year? “I hope my girls never forget it,” she says. She hopes as they grow they remember to give to others what Solutions and its
community of supporters have given to her family.
Teen Leadership Summit
Spend five minutes with one of our Solutions teens and the first thing you hear about will likely be the 2013 Teen
Leadership Summit. The two week program got our teens endlessly excited about their unlimited potential - potential that
the harsh realities of homelessness have often hidden from view.
Teen Summit Coordinator and Solutions Case Manager, Tawny Grant, shares, “The Summit is all about living above
the influence and not making low-road choices, like getting involved with gangs or dropping out of school.
We define what being a leader means for them in the context of their everyday lives - with their families,
their school, their friends.”
The Summit is designed to help our Solutions youth handle some of the challenges of their teenage years and difficult
backgrounds. It includes lessons on academic stress, parental communication, dating issues, the residual effects of physical
and emotional abuse, bullying, addiction, peer pressure and other realities of young life. It also teaches them Servant
Leadership, a life philosophy that reinforces their sense of individual potential while simultaneously reminding them of
their role as a member of the larger community.
The teens mix classroom-style lessons with outside field trips that widen their world view through community service
projects and exciting new adventures. For many teens, this meant their first time to the ice skating rink, San Diego’s
Wild Animal Park, and even a trip to see how local business, TaylorMade Golf, is run. It also meant the packing of school
supplies and donations for Solutions’ younger children, getting the teens in the habit of leading by serving.
The Summit reinforced that anything is possible for our Solutions youth.
Their trajectory is no longer dictated by their past, but by all that they can imagine for their future.
Solutions Farms
At Solutions Farms, there is a natural synergy between the growing of nutritious produce and the rebuilding of lives for the
families we serve. It was from this idea that our social enterprise, Solutions Farms, was born in July 2012. It was created
with the help of community members who offered more than 3,000 hours of donated volunteer time and $100,000 of inkind donations. This work transformed the two-acre plant nursery into a state-of-the-art aquaponics center.
The now fully functioning farm boasts substantial harvests, producing over 18,000 lbs of baby greens, basil, rainbow
chard, and kale each year, as well as large, healthy tilapia (over 500 pounds of them!) that are sold to local fish companies
after they outgrow our tanks. The organically-certified operation continues to utilize far less water than conventional
growers, and uses no fertilizer or pesticides.
The operation’s lack of chemicals has inspired our farm team to get creative this year - releasing 120,000 lady bugs to act
as natural deterrents to the more harmful insect varieties. In 2013, the farm also explored its success with over 90 plant
varieties, editing and refining the system to yield the highest quality, most prolific produce the farm can muster.
Our partnerships have grown alongside our produce. Solutions Farms’ baby greens and basil are now being served within
Vista Unified School District (VUSD) schools – many of which are attended by our own Solutions children. In addition, kale,
green onions, baby greens and other herbs are proudly sold at our Thursday farm stand at Tri-City Medical Center – a farm
stand that continues to sell out weekly.
So can a business that does good also do well? Solutions Farms is proving that it can every day.
And our residents and farm staff show no signs of slowing down.

Solutions for Change has, from its
inception, pursued a path of fiscal
prudence that is reflected in our current
financial position and stability. We derive
income from a wide variety of sources,
including individual and business
donors, foundation grants, special
events, rental income, social enterprise
efforts, and federal and state grants. This
diversification minimizes risk because we
are not heavily dependent on any specific
revenue stream or any specific donor.
We have a solid portfolio of real estate,
and an ever-expanding corps of private
donors who share our strong commitment
to helping families permanently solve
their homelessness.
Our goal is to operate “lean” and be
careful stewards of each dollar given in
support of our efforts, while at the same
time having the personnel and programs
needed to help our residents achieve
their goals and permanently end their

The Dillard Family
When Lucia walked into her Vista Terrace apartment for the first time, she felt like she
and her family were “finally home.” That feeling was a far cry from the insecurity she
had felt just a few years earlier when she was a victim of domestic abuse. When her
husband walked out on her and their two kids, Lucia knew her misfortune might be a
blessing in disguise – a chance to reclaim their lives. They came to Solutions four days
before Christmas and she says she still remembers the look on her children’s faces.
“They had presents in their hands before we were even shown a bed. And they loved
what felt like a constant slumber party at the IAC,” she says. Now after over a year at
Solutions, the kids are thriving and Lucia finally feels at ease.
“We feel so blessed to be offered this second chance,” she says.
A second chance made possible by Solutions for Change and supporters like you.
