20 Bucks for a bed

Forever Homes, Vehicle for Change is building homes for children and families. Our process is simple and involves no government help or intervention. We buy or have a donated school bus in good working order and good overall condition. We take out the interior and then frame it up, do the electrical and plumbing and create a two bedroom home with full kitchen and bath. 
Each bus is roughly 240 square feet and our builders are always looking for ways to innovate with the space and use the greenest materials they can.
We have a $25,000 family foundation grant for one forever home for a family whom we will vet and assist in moving into their leased home which they can eventually buy if they wish.
But we see the need is so great we ask your help to build five forever converted eco nest skoolie homes every year!
Let's end homelessness for families. 
$20.00 can buy a bunk bed for a child. But we need a stove and kitchen, scaled down but robust appliances that cost anywhere from 400 dollars up, we need new beds and wood and tile. Anything you would need to build a home.
The more we get, the more we build and the sooner we get kids and families off the streets and out of the back seat of a car.
We don't believe any child should grow up without a bed, a home cooked meal or a shower. 
Skoolies can house a family with a small footprint while making a big difference!
