Formerly Homeless Man Builds Micro Shelter for Homeless Friend
Video: Tiny House for Homeless
From the Times Colonist:
Peter Gould wants to help Victoria’s homeless, one shopping-cart sized tiny house at a time.
“I struggled with housing, in shelters for a few years. Now that I have a place, I want to give back,” said Gould, 60, a former shipyard and iron worker on disability assistance.
The hobby woodworker brought his first effort — a 12-square-foot wooden home on wheels — to the Our Place Society courtyard Monday, where a stream of people came to check it out and ask if he had more.
“I see people come here every morning after sleeping outside. They’re not just cold or wet, they get sick. I just talked to one woman who lost her toes,” said Gould, who visits the homeless hub for meals every day.
