Facing Homelessness began its journey in 2010, with a belief that we can and will end homelessness when we invite community to be a part of the solution. The power in humanizing homelessness is that it allows all of us to see the beauty of each person living on our streets, rather than fixating on the complexity of an issue that overwhelms us. 

The BLOCK Project invites community into the task of ending homelessness by building small homes in residential backyards for those living unsheltered. Our vision is to place one on every residentially zoned block in Seattle. Each 125 sq ft home is designed to be off-grid and self-sufficient; featuring a kitchen, bathroom, sleeping area, solar-panels, greywater system, and composting toilet. The BLOCK Project represents an innovative leap forward on the issues of homelessness, cross-class integration, social inclusion, and architectural design. Much like Airbnb, the BLOCK Project transforms the way we think about space, ownership, and living within community in an increasingly dense world.
