“Homeless in America’s Tent Cities”

I was looking for information about ‘tent cities’ in the US and abroad the other day, when I ran across this photo and audio exposé on Reuters called Homeless in America’s Tent Cities.  The article states;

“Tracking tent cities is difficult, but the NLCHP identified more than 100 across 41 U.S. states from 2008-2013, though few were officially sanctioned. Today there are roughly a dozen legal encampments nationwide, with scores of others existing on the margins or facing eviction.”

This is why we need to establish these Homesless EcoVillages.  Small collectives of tiny homes with the space and means to become self-sufficient.  If everyone would chip in a few dollars, ‘a hand-up, not a hand-out’, we could establish these little EcoVillages rather easily.

In fact, there are many organizations that already own the land.  If there is a person or business, maybe a house of worship, that has land to give, or would work out a deal to reasonably purchase the land, we would love to hear from you.

Let’s move forward from tent cities to Ecovillages where the former homeless can live and support themselves.

  1. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who has been doing a little homework on this.
    And he actually ordered me dinner due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about this matter here on your web site.|


  2. Google

    Just beneath, are a lot of totally not connected web pages to ours, having said that, they may be surely worth going over.
