After running a non-profit organization for more than 25 years, I have seen many people that needed help. They go and look for help just to return again for more help. What has been on my mind lately is how nonprofits work so hard to raise money and maintain their programs, while the problems and needs continue.  How do people become successfu?  There are many books on this subject.  I just want to mention that we have a responsibility as non-profits to help people become independent and self-empowered.
