4 Home-Building Projects That Are Making A Difference Across Communities

Home is where the heart is, but the heart is also where the home is. Everyone needs a home and these 4 home-building projects are making a difference. Watch as these communities come together and build houses for those in need!

1. Recycled Trash Makes Houses for Homeless

Gregory Kloehn first started making tiny houses out of shipping containers, then he moved onto dumpsters. He began thinking of new ways to build homes and when he bought his first smartphone, he began documenting the homeless' "homes" in his town. He now makes homes for the homeless out of whatever he can find on the street. He isn't trying to save the homeless, but he believes that this is a different approach to helping them.

2. Teens Build Studios for Thriving Art Community

Teens from a 9th grade class in San Diego, CA are helping out artists by building them studios to live in. Teacher Regina Kruglyak and head architect Bob Leathers are trying to keep artists from moving out of San Diego by building affordable homes in the area. The 9th grade students are also planning to publish a book about the lives of the 14 artists that live in the studios and the artwork that they create.

3. Community Builds Life-Changing Home for Injured War Vet

Sandra Lee was a staff sergeant in the U.S Military and served over in the Middle East. After coming home, she was finding it difficult to adjust to normal life. The Purple Heart Homes charity helped her fulfill one of her dreams to become a homeowner and helped her get comfortable living back home. They purchased a foreclosed home in the Manchester area, knocked it down, and then built Sandra the house of her dreams.

4. Grassroots Ministry Builds Homes for Heroes

In Winston-Salem, NC, about 25% of the homeless population are veterans. Whole Man Ministries decided to change that by starting a project called, "Homes 4 Our Heroes." They are currently working on renovating 5 apartment buildings so the soldiers can have a smooth transition back into civilian lifestyle. The apartments will come fully-furnished, so the soldiers only have to worry about bringing personal belongings and clothing into their new home.

These selfless communities came together and made a difference in these people's lives, changing their lives forever.
