We're promising an awful lot. What kind of community are we creating? One that takes a wholistic approach to ending homelessness. It will include mobile housing units, medical and nonprofit resources, security, a wood and metal shop, and a food bank. What does a homeless individual need more than just a roof over their head? They need a fully functioning home and a lesson on how to care for it. They need a sense of ownership, compassionate care, a sense of belonging, dignity, and respect to live a quality life. They need friends, a community of people going through a similar situation. They need a community full of resources.
Ending homelessness can not be solved by simply giving a chronically homeless person a shed.
We live in a world where homelessness seems unsolvable...but a long term solution needs to be created. Check out Mobile Loaves and Fishes in Austin, Texas who have already had success with a community design. https://mlf.org/
