Mission Statement: To provide shelter for the homeless like a voluntary homeless shelter, but creating jobs in the process. The charity we receive from outside will be used to help supply our shelters with food, supplies, and help pay the salaries of those who work to help out.
Problem: Being homeless is a dangerous condition to live in. Living on the streets with little to no protection from the outside and the struggle to get back up on your feet is just some of the problems that come with being homeless. According to a homeless census of January 2015, there are about 564,000 homeless individuals in America. These people are struggling to survive everyday, with little to no hope of returning to a life where they can rest easy.
Importance: Each year, about 700 homeless people die from hypothermia, according to the National Coalition for the Homeless. Homelessness is a problem because People don't have a place to live and they are not prepared for the harsh conditions. This organization is to help relieve the dangerous and lonely situation of being without a home.

Our Plan: There are fewer places for poor people to rent than before. According to the NLCHP, one eighth of the nation’s supply of low-income housing has been permanently lost since 2001. Designated establishments with be constructed to house and take care of the homeless. With this, people can work at the home to aid the homeless living there. This creates new jobs for people and opens an opportunity for the homeless living there to work and get themselves money.
