Greg Kloehn: he builds tiny homes for the homeless.

Greg is a building contractor located in an industrial area of Oakland, California, where many homeless people sleep on the streets in cardboard boxes or under tarps.

Those streets can be cold and dangerous, and as Greg got to know his homeless neighbors, he decided to do something to help them.

Greg started the "Homeless Homes Project" and began designing and building little-homes, using mostly materials others had illegally dumped on the streets.

(Story continues from "Read More")

"Homeless Homes" began when a homeless woman, Sheila, came to Greg on a rainy night and asked if he could spare a tarp for her.

He said, he could not, but as she walked back out into the rain, he called to her and said if she would come back tomorrow, he would have a home for her

Sheila and her husband Oscar came back the next day, and sure enough, Greg had built a tiny home for them.

This was the first of 35 homes for the homeless Greg has built, and the number is growing.

These homes, including a front door and lock, keep homeless people safe and provide a place to store their possessions, while they stay warm and dry when the weather is cold and rainy.

Homelessness has always been with us, but Greg is doing what he can for one or two homeless people at a time, to make their lives better.

Success Tip of the Week: Whatever cause you believe in, take action for however modest your action, action is always better than the best of intentions.
