"Making Home Possible" by "CES Changemakers"

"Making Home Possible" is a project led by The Center for Entrepreneurial Studies (CES). The project aims to solve the lack of affordable housing and provide internships, mentoring, and work opportunities.

Why?  Franklin County does not have a Homeless Shelter or Youth Center.  As a result, runaway, drop-out, and homeless youth are in dangerous situations where they are influenced, groomed, sexually assaulted, or used to babysit for foster children who are only seen as free money.

We aim to provide affordable housing to those in need and stop these injustices.  Our "CES Changemakers" are working hard to solve this problem by learning how to build tiny homes on wheels, which are safe, private, and comfortable spaces.  "Making Home Possible" will initially house homeless youth and young adults in a supervised setting.  In addition, CES plans to expand its customer base to serve the elderly, veterans, and those seeking a simpler lifestyle by becoming more skilled in our manufacturing and business procedures.  CES is seeking business partners with technical expertise to join us in these socially responsible efforts to be eventually shared with other communities.  If you are a Business interested in helping, please get in touch with Bonita Tompkins at bonitatompkins@cesmaine.com.  Thank you!
