The unhoused population in Fredericton, New Brunswick, where millionaire Marcel LeBrun lives, has been a growing problem for years. When LeBrun sold his start-up company, he decided to solve the problem himself — by building 99 permanent homes for his city. While he admits he could easily fill 200 homes, he thinks it’s a step in the right direction.

Besides full houses, complete with bathrooms and kitchens, the community will include a coffee shop and screen printing factory where residents will be able to work. There will also be mental health and other services on-site offered to residents. The gated community has plenty of security cameras to keep everyone safe. Enjoy the pictures and watch the news story below.
