Around the world there are many homeless people. In Los Angeles, CA. Approximately there are 254,000 men, women and children without a home. The largest percentage of homeless people are found in South Los Angeles and Metro Los Angeles. I want to build a shelter to help all of these people without a home. Having this shelter built would mean that less homeless people would be sleeping in the streets where it is dirty. These people having this shelter they will not have to worry about where are they are going to sleep or eat because they will have a nice shelter to sleep and eat.
I want this shelter to be called ¨Coming Home¨because it would represent something for the homeless people. It would represent an idea of them coming home, a place where they can eat and sleep, and have clean water to shower. It would also be nice for them to be able to call the shelter their home.
I would like to create a building that can hold around 350 people. This building would be five stories high. The first floor would be the kitchen and lunch area. And the rest of the floors will be rooms where the people can sleep.
To be able to build this shelter it would approximately cost $800,000.00 thousand dollars
