Charity transforms parking garages into homeless shelters at night


Homelessness is a massive problem in the United States and around the world. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development's Annual Homeless Assessment Report states that as of 2018, there were around 553,000 homeless people in the United States on a given night. 

Being made homeless can also quickly become a vicious cycle, with many places of employment requiring people to have a permanent address and expecting employees to maintain a level of cleanliness that may prove difficult.  

Homelessness is also a problem in Australia, where 8,000 people sleep rough every night, and over 116,000 are homeless.
