Until we come up with the ?perfect idea to solve homelessness. I think we should change our mindset. So why not start to innovate for the homeless right away.
For people sitting in front of the stores and on the sidewalk. Here you could probably innovate something transitional. Something that aren’t meant to make the situation permanent but to easy the transition to better living.
So for the people sitting in the street. They should be protected from the elements. I have seen mini see through sitting tents people use outdoors. Maybe something like this could work to ease some of the challenges.
Another idea would be tiny shops on wheels.
Maybe the low rent of a tiny houses and ?taxes would enable services like a tiny coffee house computer shop where old people can come to fix their laptops/tablets/smartphones.
So the idea is to innovate everything and see what works.
