Teens Build A Village To Combat Homelessness
Seattle's homeless count is rising. High school students have come up with a way to help. The nonprofit Sawhorse Revolution is building an 'eco-village' for the homeless community. Students are learning carpentry and are teamed up with engineering, architecture and construction professionals for the project.
This project will help combat homelessness by building personal and secure shelters for residents to sleep, a solar power hub that will allow for lighting and warm water at night, composting toilets and a community cook space for meal preparation.
