Homelessness is a big problem in the state of Texas. This is according to statistics from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The most prevalent cause of homelessness is unemployment and low income.
Other causes of homelessness are eviction, abuse, incarceration, mental problems, a change in family status, and drug or alcohol abuse.
Stream Energy launched Stream Cares. This is a humanitarian foundation whose main aim is to provide homes for the homeless.
For over a decade, Stream Cares has combined efforts with other humanitarian organizations to eradicate homelessness among the veteran community.
Corporate philanthropy is a new phenomenon that has the potential to change the lives of people in the community. It also helps in the marketing of the company’s products. It gives the companies much-needed societal goodwill.
To tackle the homelessness problem, Stream Cares partnered with Hope Supply Company. This is a charity organization whose objective is to meet the necessities of homeless children.
Hope Supply organizes an annual event at a water park in Texas where children enjoy playing with one another in a new environment. For more than four years, Stream employees and associates join the fun and donate money and supplies.
Stream Cares was one of the first respondents when a number of tornadoes hit North Texas. They responded by donating money to help alleviate the homelessness problem.
Stream Energy has also been involved in other projects such as Once in a Lifetime, where they organized transport for underprivileged veterans to reunite them with their families.
Another generous act was when Stream Cares paid all expenses for the American Girl Doll Experience.
Stream Energy continues to identify opportunities through which it can lift the lives of the less fortunate by devoting their time, energy and finances.
Stream Energy uses network marketing business model to promote the sale of its energy products. Stream pays its associates commissions when they sell products to consumers or by recruiting associates.
