MAKING HOME POSSIBLE
About Making Home Possible
Making Home Possible is a community project led by The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies. The purpose of the project is to solve a community problem, employ people, and provide internships.
Franklin County does not have a Homeless Shelter or Youth Center. Runaway and Homeless Youth are ending up in dangerous situations and are being influenced, manipulated, and sexually assaulted. Youth are dropping out of school to babysit foster children and are groomed to perform illicit drug activities in exchange for basic human needs or a little money.
Our goal is to bring our community together to provide affordable housing to those who are homeless or living in dangerous situations. We wish to solve this problem by building mobile tiny homes, which are safe, private, and comfortable spaces for our most fragile community members. Making Home Possible will initially house homeless youth (ages 16-24) and plans to expand to serve other marginalized groups such as the elderly and veterans.
Homelessness initiatives in Franklin County have been tried and failed for the last 20 years. Tiny Homes will resolve this issue once and for all to make for a healthy thriving community.
