Since we won the Take Action Grant, the CFTH project has moved on quite nicely! We are now in prototype stage!
CFTH has partnered with an already established nonprofit company aiding homeless individuals in Los Angeles, SOVA. Carts for the Homeless is now considered an umbrella project under the SOVA organization, and we benefit from their 501(c)(3) coding.
The next step was getting a foundation for the prototype cart. To do this, we contacted MOD Roto; a Michigan based Plastics Company, and they donated a large plastic bin (formerly an industrial recycling bin) to CFTH.
We have refined the designs to the cart as well, and are currently building the first fully functioning mobile shelter and storage pushcart designed to meet the needs of a homeless person in Los Angeles!
