How awesome is this?!

Via @makingsenseofscience ⁣:
“Kenyan engineer and entrepreneur Nzambi Matee is using science to solve two huge crises at once.

Matee’s home city of Nairobi has more plastic waste than it knows what to do with — about 500 metric tons each day, and not all of it is recycled (or recyclable). So Matee has developed a creative solution. Matee takes non-recyclable plastic waste from factories, heats it, mixes it with sand, and compresses the material into bricks. These bricks, Matee says, are anywhere between five to seven times stronger than concrete — and her startup company, Gjenge Makers, has transformed more than 20 tons of waste into bricks since 2017.

But that’s not all: Matee is now in the process of adding more workers in order to churn out more bricks than ever before. The bricks, says Matee, will help create low-cost housing for Kenyans, which is currently in extremely high demand.”

The 2021 Out of Reach report has been released by the National Low Income Housing Coalition. It continues to paint a pretty bleak picture about wages not being able to keep up with the cost of rental housing in Michigan -- and the entire country.

Do you know of landlords, property management companies, or homes available. Let us know! We are one of these affiliates. We have an affordable housing shortage in our area. Homelessness is not always because of financial reasons. We need housing. Families need housing.

The most cited reason for family homelessness is a lack of affordable housing. #TheMoreYouKnow

🔥Hot off the presses!🔥 You probably didn't know this but, when writing grants Nicole often references the In-Kind value that each of you bring Family Promise.

When we are in rotation approximately 264 hours are shared each week, or 13,728 hours/year. At the new estimated value of $28.54/hour - your combined gift of time 🕒 to Family Promise is $391,797.12 - our actual budget isn't even this much.
We truly appreciate each and every one of you and the precious gift of your time that you so generously give.

General information

Family Promise recognizes that poverty and homelessness are intricately connected problems that require a multifaceted response. We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of thousands of volunteers. Shelter: Our flagship program addresses family homelessness cost-effectively by utilizing existing community resources. Our guests are housed in warm, welcoming environments, typically congregational buildings with volunteers giving of their time, making meals, and sharing hospitality. They create and connect families to the community, lending their passion and expertise to help families get back on their feet. While the shelter program is centered on families experiencing homelessness, our model is a holistic response. There is simply not enough affordable housing in America; one in four renter households spend more than 50 percent of their income on rent and utilities. The majority of people we serve are helped by our two other major components: prevention and stabilization. Prevention: Family Promise Affiliates intercede on behalf of families in danger of losing their homes through a variety of programs and partnerships, providing rental assistance or landlord mediation, so families do not end up on the street. There is a tremendous benefit to families in avoiding the trauma of homelessness, but the savings to society are also considerable. Stabilization: the issues that cause homelessness are complex and often cannot be fully addressed while a family is in the shelter program. It is vital to provide continuing aftercare once families have moved back into housing. Affiliates offer a variety of supports like food donations, financial capability programs, permanent housing, and workforce development. Family Promise stabilization programs help families succeed today and create transformational opportunities for tomorrow.
