Sheltering Connections

Design good experiences to the homeless changing the shelters

In a research conducted among users of public shelters, is was observed that they have trouble living together as well as understanding the meaning of being part of a community. Many of those people can not return to the market because they do not have a fixed adress and therefore, they become inctive and are left in the streets. Many of those people have talents, know how to do something useful. Here is what we thought: create community shelters where the homeless people can exchange experiences, help each other and rejoin society in a proper way. Shelters can be true centers of knowledge, places of transformation.
