Homes for homeless

Paso RoblesJanuary 5, 2014 

Can we do more for our homeless?

Several other cities and organizations are doing innovative things for their homeless. An article on Huffington Post pointed out that Eugene, Ore., has built heated yurts for their homeless. And Occupy Madison (Wis.) just built its first very small (98 square feet) house for a homeless woman. The house cost $4,000 to build; the money was donated. Occupy Madison hopes to build 10 of these small houses, on land as yet not acquired, forming a homeless “village.”
