Instead of Ignoring A Homeless Woman, This Kind Man Builds Her A Home

Credit :

An incredible idea, which all started with a simple friendship is now an act of kindness that is touching everyone's heart. Elvis Summers saw one elderly lady sleeping in dirt each day and instead of watching, decided to do something about it. This man builds her a shelter that is safe to sleep in every night!

The Welcome Home: A Tiny House, Huge Purpose campaign and initial idea all began with a simple friendship. Irene "Smokie" McGhee has been on the streets for 10 years, and is not a drug addict in any way. She was married and lost her husband, which eventually led to her losing her home and having nowhere to go. Irene has a son who also has six children of his own. Although he helps his mother as much as he could, she doesn't think it's right to live with him.

Unfortunately, this woman has to sleep in a patch of dirt every night. Elvis knew he had to do something, and he did. Using $500 of his own money he goes to Home Depot and buys materials he needs to help Irene to have a place of her own. The house he build is on wheels, so it can easily be moved. Even the police in the neighborhood have been very supportive about it.
