building homes for the homelessHailey Fort, a 5 year old girl from Washington, is now changing the world, one homeless person at a time. With the help of her loving mom, she is trying to build 12 mobile shelters this year for homeless people.

The structures cost about $300 each to build. The walls are made from pallets, which are stuffed with recycled denim insulation. Each structure has a shingled roof, drywall, wood siding, and vinyl flooring. They also include window curtains, a solar-powered lamp, and most importantly, a secure lock on the front door.

When Hailey first started building the shelters, her family met with the city to make sure the shelter won’t conflict with any of the laws or zoning regulations. They are now using church parking lots, with permission, to place the structures on.

Her community has been extremely supportive of Hailey’s efforts, she even just recently launched a GoFundMe page to help with the costs of the 12 mobile shelters. She also has a goal to give away 250 pounds of food, 1,000 toiletries, 500 feminine hygiene products, and 100 coats this year.
