Everybody should have a home.

That... Looks like a great place to live, actually. And it comes fully furnished? That's awesome.

Yeah, I don't need much room myself.  A bed to sleep in, a spot for my computer, a kitchen, and my basic needs are met.

Wi-Fi might not be great.

400sqft isn't bad at all, especially considering the communal building containing laundry and group cooking facilities.

My house is bigger than that, but it's also only about 500sqft per floor so I could imagine making it work easily enough. My old apartment was about 650sqft, and that included an unused second bedroom that was about 100sqft

I am all for projects like this. Homeless people getting a place to live just makes sense and has been shown to be cheaper and more effective than the current system. But, I don't think it belongs on the D'awww tab. There is nothing D'awww about it. These are adult human beings who have been beaten down by a society they were forced into being granted essentially the most basic of human needs. It's nice some people won't be on the street because some other people actually care, but that's not cute or I click on the D'awww. I want fluffly animals, babies, and baby fluffly animals.

She's saving lives, and not just the homeless people's. Springfield MO is in the middle of Missouri's Delta variant epicenter.

Try fighting COVID in a communal shelter, with people transition in and out constantly, having them move to another part of state (i.e., go be homeless somewhere else) or country.

Shouldn't this be on the Main page? Putting this on Dawww kinda makes it seem like we're equating homeless people to pets

This is exactly the idea i had. So it must be good.

There's also housing for homeless midgets called "Stay Free Mini-Pads"

If I ever win the lottery, this is the kind of thing I would spend my money on.

Sounds pretty good.  But, who is going to abandon a mobile home park when the residents are paying 2 bedroom apartment rates just to park their home which is mobile.
