Homelessness is a serious problem in many communities. The Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody), a suburb of Vancouver, is working to build a temporary shelter for the homeless from donated specially altered shipping containers. Every room is heated, fireproofed, and offers reading lights.
This solution only requires community approval before it can become a reality. Watch this promotional video, then visit the links below for more information.
