As temperatures in many states across the US drop well below freezing this winter, two companies, Roofing Wichita KS and Houston Real Estate Specialists, Inc., have decided to team up in an effort to put a roof over the head of any homeless in search of a warm place to sleep.
After reading an article written by Joseph Clark, a realtor with Houston Real Estate Specialists, in regards to the homeless population plaguing the US and the currently decreasing winter temperatures, many workers from Roofing Wichita KS decided to reach out to Joseph Clark in an attempt to come together and form a solution to a commonly shared problem.
Joseph was very receptive of the call from Roofing Wichita KS, and following a face-to-face meeting only days later, the two companies formulated a plan to construct many small houses and living complexes throughout the United States that will be entirely free of charge, in an effort to decrease the homeless population, to give those that are currently homeless a warm place to sleep during these cold winter nights, and to give all of these individuals a second chance at life.
The program has caught nationwide attention and is currently underway in every major city across the US.
Homes and developments are being built, and the program has already begun processing those individuals who are in need and seeking assistance. It has begun as well to integrate individuals and families into their new homes.
The program is intended to provide a roof over their heads for a term of 12-months: long enough to obtain employment, save some money, and ultimately get back on their feet and have the ability to carry themselves forward.
The idea is simple: If you build it, they will come!
Volunteers from every state have even donated their time towards expediting the paperwork, assisting individuals with seeking and obtaining employment, reintegration into society for those individuals made homeless due to incarceration and other circumstances, and so on.
Only time will tell if this creates a pay it forward mentality, or a sense of entitlement among those receiving this assistance.
