THE MISSION OF PROJECT HOMEFUL 

‘Project Homeful’ is implementing a unique, robust solution to eliminate homelessness worldwide. Using unique forms of social innovation, social capital, knowledge networking, and collaborative participation, we are building an online web portal that will be used to bring providers together to support those in need of places to live.

A BIG HAIRY AND AUDACIOUS VISION

Together we will eliminate homelessness in the U.S., by enabling local efforts within each of the nation’s 3100 counties by the year 2020. All 3100 counties across the U.S. wll be enabled to perform their own character into ProjectHomeful’s implementation, held together by an online and mobile interface that brings together those needing a home with the micro teams that can provide one.

VIC’s STORY – FROM INSIGHT TO APPLICATION

ProjectHomeful’s roots are based on the insights that came from its founder, while caught in the grasp of homelessness himself.  A realization that our view of homelessness is a complete misperception. Moreover, the way we are approaching homelessness is actually helping it to stay alive, rather than be eliminated..

Vic’s insight moved to an idea. Seeing the homeless paradigm as a world cultural crisis that has been in place for thousands of years, and getting worse instead of better, he challenged himself to create a socially innovative solution that eliminates homelessness all together.

A SOCIAL DESIGN SOLUTION

The solution blends today’s internet and social technologies with collaborative processes into a social design solution that affects not only the poor, but humanity as a whole. Based in micro-collaborations, it’s essential elements for application are simple yet profound, having the power to deter the impact of a collapsing world society and instead revitalize it.

“SOCIAL DESIGN today requires a conceptual shift:
From building agency – To enabling citizenry.”

OUTCOMES
The primary outcome is extinction of homelessness as a concept in the minds of modern social systems. If someone is without a home, it will be of highest priority to the immediate community members to create one for that person or family. The reduction of costs and stresses on the social system will be dramatic. From a reduction in drug abuse to an increase in overall productivity by enabling an alternative currency system for shaping a secondary (parallel) economy that empowers those unable to access the U.S. dollar.

Providing homes is only the beginning to ProjectHomeful, which acts as a catalyst that frees people from their homeless state. In doing so. By giving someone a home, we free up the initiative of individuals and nations to establish the necessary conditions for the success of profit-making enterprise, done not through traditional agency-based strategic planning, but instead through self-adaptive personal activation of each person’s creativity and desire to serve their greater community.

LONG TERM SECONDARY ECONOMY
ProjectHomeful’s longer term outcome holds the potential to seed secondary economies, allowing those without access to existing monetary systems to be able to – not just survive – but thrive. Using an alternative currency for shared resources and skills, the evolving ProjectHomeful community will generate a healthier future for all who participate.

CROWDSOURCE FUNDED

A part of the project’s potential comes from gaining commitment by individuals who can/may become micro-team members. Thus Crowdsource Funding will be used, with its goal to match foundation money during the second phase of the project. I presently seek funding for the first phase, which will establish the prototype for application. See presentations below.
