Making a difference
Homelessness is an ongoing problem in America. It’s a cause worth tackling, and, it’s a cause that aligns well to our business. We strive to acquire new customers and then get them to stay with us. For many homeless, the path is similar – acquire a home and then try to stay in it.
Humble Design cites statistics showing that approximately 50 percent of homeless families placed in permanent housing return to shelters within 12 months. According to Humble Design, its transformation of empty houses into warm and welcoming homes has reduced that number to less than 1 percent for the more than 1,500 homes designed since its inception in 2009.
