This Man Started A Project Using Junk Found On The Street To Build Shelters For The Homeless

Gregory Kloehn is an artist living in Oakland, California. Using a wood pallet with wheels attached to it as a base, Kloehn constructs a mini shelter for the homeless. Most are complete with windows and enough room to stretch your legs while lying down. “It’s fun to build these things,” he said. “It’s fun to build a rapport with the homeless.” Kloehn commented on the excess consumerism of this country and explained that every mini-home he’s built used materials that he found off the street.

Check out some of the homes on his Instagram.

And Hooplaha made a sweet video about Kloen and his project.
