Can you help us? Our electric bill is $240.

The Houseless Movement house and Garden currently shelters 12 people and 3 dogs. 

  • 5 people and one dog in the house.
  • 1 person and one dog in the garage.
  • 2 people and one dog in the camper.
  • 1 woman in a tiny house.
  • 1 man in another tiny house.
  • A woman in a tent.
  • A man in another tent. 

Just yesterday I handed out 4 electric heaters (this is the first time in my history of doing this work that I'm able to provide electric heat instead of propane heat.) I will probably be purchasing at least two more of these heaters. I got them at Sam's Club. They were $36 each:

If our electric bill was $240 last month, I can't imagine what it will be the upcoming months. And our furnace is now running 24/7. And we have a full service bathroom fully running that is available for any homeless person any time of the day or night. (I'm pretty sure it's the first always-available bathroom to ever be available to the homeless community in Akron.)

We have stationary tubs on the other side of this room that people can use to wash clothes as well as their hands and face. 

If this cause moves you, I can't think of how you could better spend your money. We have no executives we're paying salaries to. We don't make any fancy brochures. All we spend our money on is services for homeless people. 

If you are able to donate, please do so here:

 If you can upgrade your Houseless Movement membership please do so here:

 And I've just started a Houseless Movement Patreon where I share the down and dirty behind-the-scenes stories of all the things that go on at the Houseless Movement House and Garden. You can subscribe to that here:

It is unbelievable to me that we have to fight so hard for basic shelter and warmth and hygiene in the richest, most Christian country in the world. But we do. And it is YOU that makes it all happen. YOU are the hero we need. Our leaders stand by as American freeze and suffer while YOU stand up and do the right thing. 

Thank you for all that you do. You are incredible. 

I love you,

Sage

    A bunch of homeless addicts can freeze for all I’m concerned. No reason these moronic pieces of 💩 cannot work. Here’s to hoping the trash takes itself out sooner than later.

      This is providing a very basic level of humanity and some kind people help.

      Keep licking the boot soles of those who wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire. On second thought, why not go contract some delta for daddy Trump to really own the libs
