Man Gives $4 Million Dollar Apartment Complex To Let Homeless Women And Their Children Live For Free

Wealth is not distributed equally between people around the world, and some just have a lot more than others. But this does not mean that there aren’t still people out there who are willing to give back, help the less fortunate and do some good while on this Earth.

Rick Steves is among them, as he is a multi-millionaire with a big heart who made a fortune out of his European travel-guides and travel series.
Steves donated an entire apartment complex to the YWCA to help homeless women and children start a new life and stay off the streets.
The apartment complex is worth $4 million and can host up to 24 people, who can all stay rent-free there. The complex was named Trinity Palace and Steves bought it in 2015, but with the help of YWCA and Rotary Club, he managed to transform it into a safe space for women and children and offer them guidance.
Most of the women living in the apartment complex are single mothers, who struggle with everyday life so having a place where they can rest and put their lives together is of great help.
Steves hopes to inspire other multi-millionaires to start giving back to their community and contribute to the reduction of the existing gaps between rich and poor.

      I was once homeless in a hopeless situation, but I kept focused and stayed good despite all the negative stuff happening to me for years , it was hell but I never gave up , just stay good and do good , because karma is real my friend. Believe in yourself, nothing is impossible, never give up, xx

    Wow! This act of kindness speaks volumes about Steves
    If Steve’s would challenge every MultiMillionaire he knows to do the same apartment complex donations for 24 people. This could be a “win-Win” for all. MultiMillionaire would get a tax deduction while
    24 homeless people X 10,000 MultiMillionaires would provide housing for over 240,000 HOMELESS PEOPLE!!!
    A Great 2021 SOLUTION FOR A GLOBAL PANDEMIC IMPACTING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS HOMELESS PEOPLE. A MIRACLE INDEED!

    While philanthropy is to be admired, it is no replacement for governmental policy and action. We can not rely on the good will of rare individuals; these are just bandaid solutions that will miss many other problems that aren’t good PR to solve by citizens. Policy in education, public payed healthcare (including treatment of drug rehabilitation), community support, job placement, training, UBI and many other social services paid for by the general public addressing the source of all these problems are the only way to really fix these issues. I’m afraid that the “looking out for me” generation that has existed for decades will not allow us, in the capitalistic first world, to really grasp as a fundamental responsibility to our siblings on earth. We must move the social conscious in the correct direction and progress through policy and law initiatives that have a ground level affect for the public. A stable and healthy populace is beneficial to all.

  21. Robyn says:

    Ive been in that situation before and worse.May God Protect you and keep you.You are an Angel sent to these women and children.Your a SPECIAL SPECIAL PERSON AND GOD HAS USED YOU!PRAISE THE LORD.WISH THERE WHERE MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS

  23. Lou says:

    You are a great American and humanitarian who has done the Right Thing for these women and children. Now let’s hope other wealthy Americans follow your path.

  24. Sonny Bellotte says:

    Rick, I really enjoy your travel programs. And I’ve always had a feeling that you must be a great, caring man. It’s wonderful to see that my guess was accurate.

  25. Renee says:

    I think that is very nice. I always wanted to teach young mothers various skills like sewing, crocheting , parenting so they can learn surival skills. I would like to start a nonprofit group.

  26. Sandra says:
