Oceanside CA— North County Republican Coalition (NCRC) is pleased to welcome Chris Megison, cofounder, President and CEO of Vista’s North County Solutions for Change, to our August 21st meeting. Solutions for Change is a non-profit entity which transforms lives and communities by permanently solving family homelessness. The approach is unique, providing a complete and sustainable solution driven by accountability. Mr. Megison will address “Public policy in the New Administration as related to Poverty and Homelessness.”
There are many solutions at Solutions for Change. Taken together, they are the pillars of supporting a productive environment in which they build futures for homeless families. One integral part of the social enterprise is the Solutions Farms, the largest commercial aquaponics farming operation in Southern California, which allows residents to work, acquiring and refining skills. Profits are reinvested in Solutions for Change programs, so each generation of residents helps the next.
Mr. Megison served ten years in the United States Marine Corps and is a graduate of National University. Since 1993 Chris has designed and led numerous social purpose initiatives and innovations that have solved homelessness permanently for over 4,500 people. His trademark impact is his “get up, suit up and show up” model of leadership in which he leads from the front, a style of servant leadership that he learned as a U.S. Marine. Mr. Megison established Solutions for Change in 1999 and, five years later, received Congressional recognition from Congressman Darrell Issa for his efforts to solve family homelessness.
The North County Republican Coalition (NCRC) promotes local Republican candidates and conservative issues in North County. NCRC meets the third Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at the Veterans Association of North County Resource Center (VANC), 1617 Mission Avenue, Oceanside, CA 92054. There is no charge to attend. Please RSVP to Ben at [email protected] or call (760) 583-3579. Indicate if you want to purchase dinner for $14, cash or check only. Check us out on Facebook as North County Republican Coalition.
