Panhandling can be a problem in urban areas and Fort Wayne is no exception. Instead of just giving cash handouts, it’s important for community members to find truly transformative solutions to help those in need. Real Change is an initiative aimed at educating area residents on the best ways to help, not enable, the panhandlers they may encounter on a day-to-day basis.
