This is nice! RainCity, an organization out of Vancouver Canada which provides specialized housing and support services for people living with mental illness has done the OPPOSITE of what other bitch cities have been doing by setting up things like metal spikes and detterants for homeless people around the city (simply hoping they will just disappear I guess…) and the organization has built bus stop ad signs which double as extra shelter!
Less than 6% of the homeless are homeless by choice, which is why organizations like RainCity provide specialized housing and support services for people living with mental illness, addictions and other services. Their goal is to find solutions to end homelessness in a manner that’s appropriate and and environmentally supportive.

Big-ups to Raincity for working towards lending that extra hand rather than shoving sharp spikes into people where they sleep! Check out more images from the project below!
