Shelter at De Vaul’s

San Luis ObispoMay 1, 2013 

Dan De Vaul’s property is in the county area of San Luis Obispo. The city of SLO needs to build a homeless shelter. If the city and county team up with Cal Poly, it would be possible to design a functional, all-purpose homeless shelter. It could fulfill the purpose of Sunny Acres, as well as serve the homeless. Please consider total solarization with battery packs. The electric bill would be net zero. If done properly, these buildings could set a standard for homeless shelters in the entire state of California. The funding can be petitioned from the Bill Gates Foundation and would qualify under the 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity status.
