9-Year-Old Builds Shelters For the Homeless

Hailey Fort started to help the homeless 4 years ago when she saw someone on the side of the street and asked her mother if there was anything she could do. They bought him lunch and from there Hailey has taken it upon herself to start a garden to donate vegetables and begin building mobile sleeping shelters for the homeless in Kitsap county.

Thanks to donated materials, including flooring and shingles, the first shelter cost only about $400. Hailey raises money through a GoFundMe campaign. It surpassed $45,000 last fall, and her parents keep increasing it with every goal she meets. “Hailey’s received a lot of donations from people,” Miranda said, “but the actual gardening and harvesting and the building has been her.”

For more information, please visit popsci.com, GoFundMe and the website of Hailey Fort.
