A bold new solution for homelessness is rising in California’s Orange County.
On September 21, the nonprofit organization American Family Housing set up the first of 54 shipping containers that will provide housing for homeless veterans in Midway City, Calif., the Los Angeles Times reported. Once they’re stacked and connected, the containers will form a sleek two-story residence with 16 units.
Called Potter’s Lane, the residence will be California’s first shipping-container apartment building. It is expected to be completed by January.
