Eliminating Homelessness Together
"SOCIAL DESIGN today requires a conceptual shift
FROM creating agency TO enabling citizenry." Vic D.
“It’s not that we dream too big and will never reach our vision of the future.
Rather, it’s that we dream too small … and we do.” (Anonymous)
PROJECT HOMEFUL's MISSION
ProjectHomeful.com is far more than just another way to shelter the homeless. It is a unique, robust solution for eliminating homelessness worldwide. Using unique forms of social innovation, social capital, knowledge networking, and
collaborative participation, we are building an online web portal that will be used to bring providers together to support those in need of places to live.
BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS VISION
Together we will eliminate homelessness in the U.S., by enabling local efforts within each of the nation's 3100 counties by the year 2020.
PROBLEM TO SOLVE
Society has used a 'supporting agency' approach throughout history to try to solve the homeless issue. It has become a way of service for so many who are not homeless, to feel good about making a difference in the world. Yet, when
you think deeply about this, in some ways this approach continues to keep the homeless crisis established and ongoing! Just look around. After a thousand years of living with the tragedy of homelessness, it's still with us. It has not worked.
Certainly programs that support the homeless is important, and most efforts have been done with nothing but the best intention. Yet these organizations (agencies) that serve the homeless continue to only partially solve the homeless
issue before running out of an ever-reducing supply of money and resources. More over, the agency method has only been able to help a small fraction of the homeless with any kind of sustaining support.
Today’s highest social imperative is to heal humanity's wounds, starting FIRST by making sure everyone in this world has a viable place to live. Not a 'shelter', but a 'home'. To do
this, we must step to a level above the problem. Einstein once said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” This is so true for the homeless situation. Then, once
homelessness is no longer one of the world's permeating social dis-eases, dissolving many other of society's social problems will have a foundation to heal as a result.
A SOCIAL DESIGN SOLUTION
Changing our story: Instead of 'helping the homeless', we will eliminate homelessness all together. Instead of building agencies of support, Project Homeful's is shifting its focus to 'enabling civic engagement'. Done through a network
of small participatory civic collaborations not lead by agency, but instead by 'we the people'.
ProjectHomeful.com's applied solution blends today's Internet and social technologies with collaborative processes called 'We Groups'. These micro-collaborations are what shape the social design solution that affects, not only the
poor and homeless, but also humanity as a whole. ProjectHomeful's essential elements for application are simple yet profound, having the power to deter the impact of a collapsing world society and instead revitalize it.
