They managed to eradicate
homelessness through their
"Housing First" policy.
They offer a home to all homeless
people even when they are still
taking drugs or abusing alcohol, they
can stay as long as they are willing
to cooperate with support workers.
The success of this was also possible because of the help and
support of their state, municipalities, and NGO's. This
could also be the case in our country if we are
all be able to reach the hands of those
people who need our help.
Purpose:GIVE THEM A ROOF:
- Providing Shelters for All aims to help the homeless people by
providing them permanent homes and needs-based support.
It aims to address the societal issue involving poverty and
homelessness in the country.
- This project is worth sponsoring as it will greatly benefit the country's
economic development, and most importantly, it will open new
opportunities and will provide new beginnings to every homeless Filipino family.
This project will have a partnership to chosen engineering and architectural
firms, as well as different advocacy groups who pushes the rights of every
Filipino people to have a safe and comfortable home. Aside from building shelters
for homeless people, the project will also provide free health consultations to
monitor their health status as well as seminars that includes activities and
lectures that will help them gain new skills and techniques that they can use to
build their own business. The project will also launch a website and social media
accounts (@projectROOFph) to reach a wider audience.
The said project will need the support of all the citizens of the Philippines
including different organizations to continuously push the advocacy and give
bigger and better opportunities to the lives of every Filipino family. Monetary
support that amounts to 3,000,000 - 5,000,000 php. is also needed
to start the construction of several houses that will shelter the homeless
people. The funds will be used to buy the necessary affordable but high
quality materials needed to ensure the safety and the strong foundation of
the houses. Be also ensured that we will be transparent.
