It is hard to believe that there are homeless people in some of the wealthiest countries. In such places, it is even harder to provide a home for the homeless in such countries. Basic needs are not optional as much as one would get a temporary provision of the same.
People touched by such scenarios as seen in the video ‘The man building tiny homes for the homeless in Los Angeles” are doing all it takes to provide homes.
However, there are several challenges faced by people trying to deal with homelessness. Despite the dire need for shelter by homeless people, the local authority poses a significant threat to the project.
In Los Angeles, for instance, ins opposed to the tiny houses being set up for homeless people. It is hard to undertake a project without the go-ahead of the authority. There is a lot of back and forth for projects without the permission of the local authority. With this, the tiny houses project is unable to continue with the project successfully. There is a great need to get the support of the local authority to curb the rising rise of homelessness.
Building houses is not comfortable, especially when it comes to acquiring resources to undertake the project. Where do you get the money to fund a home project to cater to the homelessness crisis? Who is willing to provide residential tile and stone for your project? What are the most suitable materials for your project? As much as one has the will to help people get a place to call home, affordability is crucial. There are, however, ways to raise funds and get sponsors as long as you have the right avenues.
Most people are homeless due to the lack of the ability to afford to house. Reasons such as earning too littles and unemployment have been the main reasons people cannot keep up with the house bills.
This, in return, denies many families the chance to have a shelter, which poses a significant danger to their lives. Not having a home may expose one to a cold that may cause health issues.
Building homes for the homeless faces the danger of being brought down during a cleaning process. There is hardly enough space to place the tiny houses. With this, it gets hard to award homes and the stability of the project. The project is seen as a threat to city activities such as cleaning the streets every two weeks. Regardless of this, it is essential t pursue the best solution to deal with homelessness. Being homeless is devastating: it is hard to survive without a place to stay. With the chance, help someone get a home today.
