The result is an easy to copy roadmap for off-ramping people from endless homelessness and free neighborhoods to reclaim their parks and sidewalks.
What is Matt's team's key insight? A lack of safe shelter is not THE RESULT of people's inability to help themselves, it is THE CAUSE of it. Though just as important as food and clothing, safe shelter has long been a gap in rehabilitation. Hope Factory Production plugs this gap with data driven, neighborhood friendly (NIMBY resistant!) proven methods connecting public health strategies, CAD-CAM design. and a people-helping-people formula.
