Helping your change make a change . Denver Parking Meter Program : Denver’s Road Home has been implemented in other cities as well. Instead of giving change to panhandlers – will donors can drop change into special and distinct Parking Meters and the funds are used by shelters and homeless service agencies.
Denver has 86 meters and already collected $100,000.00. and panhandling has decreased near the meters because the market for panhandling is not there.
In Oregon it is called the Change for Change program.
