Dr. Pete Lorins’ genesis is deeply rooted in philanthropy and altruism. Indeed, both of his parents Martha Lorins (an entrepreneurial designer and department store owner) and his Father a Pastor for nearly five decades, were genuine philanthropists who owned and managed orphanages and also helped random people from all walks of life. Like them, Mr. Lorins seems to have a heart for the truly less fortunate and prior to starting this special program for the homeless at StrategicOnes.com /Lorins Faith Ministries, he spent a couple years cultivating relationships with various homeless individuals as to understand their plights and stories, which further catalyzed his natural desire to help the homeless and encourage others to do the same. Despite being born with a silver spoon in his mouth compared to most Haitians in his homeland, upon arriving in the United States, Dr. Lorins recalls at least two periods of his life in which he was practically homeless, one of which was while he was in Engineering Undergrad despite working 84 hours a week or 12 hours a night and 7 days a week to pay his tuition out of pocket due to his then immigration status. Thus, Dr. Lorins has first hand knowledge about what being homeless can mean to people... despair, demeaning, human heartlessness, defeat, and the triumph of evil over good.
Initially, StrategicOnes.com was started to assist those in developing foreign countries with things like micro loans and assist all missions in such countries as well. While the latter remains part of the Strategic Ones agenda, Dr. Lorins realized that far too often people are too busy trying to (often unsuccessfully) save the World at a distance for obvious reasons, when they fail to save their Brothers and Sisters who are practically Homeless or less fortunate neighbors, who live right around their households.
A lot of hearts have become hardened about the Homeless and less fortunate lately. Dr. Lorins has communicated with far too many people who are in the working class, rich, and wealthy, and he noticed that far too many of them either didn’t pay enough attention to the Homeless or even assumed the worst of them as if their plights are such an unlikely occurrence. Yet, the reality is that the majority of Americans are either an addiction or a few pay checks away from being Homeless or from feeling defeated. The latter prompted Dr. Lorins to write the Article ARE THE WEALTHY TRULY HEARTLE$$...? as to encourage or challenge both working class and wealthy folks to pitch in in his mission to help the Homeless or less fortunate and be their Brothers and Sisters Keepers. Most donations that are even made to non-profits are spent in administrative costs and often the needy nearly get nothing, yet people are satisfied with saying I DONATED without actually getting their hands dirty as well or at least seeing the fruits of their work.
At StrategicOnes.com/Lorins Faith Ministries, we put our money where our mouths are by not only giving, but by also doing grass roots stuff for the Homeless or less fortunate. We intend to attack the issue with transitional housing and job programs in cities like Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, San Francisco, but the start is like that of JESUS… providing others LOVE and something TO EAT and DRINK as to show WE LOVE THEM and WE DO and so does GOD!
We urge you to do the same either directly or via our program by CONTACTING US at the information provided below:
