A Church in Hawaii is battling homelessness by deploying Alaskan home domes that look like igloos and are easy to transport and assemble.
The First Assembly of God in Honolulu has so far finished setting up 12 home domes made by Alaska-based firm InterShelter. These igloo-like, fiber glass homes provide a quick temporary solution for homeless people in Hawaii, Inhabitat details.
In 2015, Hawaii Gov. David Ige declared a state of emergency because of the state’s highest rate of homelessness in the country. In the last two years, the growing homelessness issue has caused tent cities to overflow, and sidewalks to be filled with unsightly temporary shelters, The Christian Science Monitor reports.
