I believe it’s a good idea to give to people who are homeless but there a few charities who work specifically not with the homeless but by rather donating to people who are in low socioeconomic circumstances.
These people live in Government provided housing but the charities may assist with food hampers etc.
The issue is that I’m aware that some of these people use Marijuana and drink heavily and rely on charity donations to help feed their children.
It is not my place to judge and I’m sure there’s also many others who are good and just struggling financially and I’m not aware of these people’s potentially difficult pasts or circumstances.
I guess what I’m wondering is is it a good idea to donated food etc to people in these circumstances as their children still need to eat regardless of whether their parents are spending money on marijuana etc,or would donating be doing a disservice to them and just perpetuating a “hand out mindset”?
I hope that didn’t come across too harsh!
I’m not wording in very well.
