MAKING HOME POSSIBLE
About Making Home Possible
Making Home Possible is a community project being led by The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies. Farmington currently does not have a Homeless Shelter. Runaway and Homeless Youth are ending up in dangerous situations including being influenced, manipulated, and abused. Youth are primarily being abused sexually and are being trafficking (i.e. Drop out of school to babysit foster children).
Our goal is to bring the 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 a safe, private, and comfortable space 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. It is time the community comes together for a single initiative to resolve this issue once and for all.
