A House for the Homeless

June 10, 2015

A little creativity went into helping a homeless woman in Los Angeles find housing. It's hopefully the start of something promising, but if nothing else, it is certainly a step in the right direction. The project is titled, "Tiny House, Huge Purpose" and it aims to build tiny houses on wheels for the homeless in Los Angeles.  By keeping the house small and portable, it avoids building permits (if built on private property) and allows the individual to keep it off city streets. According to the Los Angeles Times: "Elvis Summers started his donation campaign for “Smokie,” a grandmother who was homeless and sleeping in dirt. Hoping to give “Smokie” shelter and a reasonable place to sleep, Summers gathered wood, shingles, a window and a door to create a tiny home."  When Summers was asked if he was charging rent, he replied, “Money cannot buy the purpose of this house because it can only be paid for by love.”  A fitting response for a man seeking to help those who need it most."
