Please help convince politicians to build a city with housing for all homeless.
Hey, thanks for visiting. My name is Duane, I’m the founder of Citizens Again. Most people think I’m a bit crazy for such a big idea to help the homeless, so let me tell you a bit about myself.
Years ago, I was working as a software engineer in the corporate world. I was laid off, and I realized I wanted to make a difference to others. So I left my career. I moved my family to a more affordable area to live, and began my effort to “change the world.”
I tried a few things, but I realized I could have the greatest impact on those that need help the most – the chronic homeless.
I’ve been an entrepreneur my entire life. I started a computer magazine at age 22; I’ve created sold-out seminars; I’ve created websites and apps; I rented a Major League baseball park for a startup expo; and when I was a kid, I went door-to-door and sold personalized greeting cards to earn myself a pinball machine.
Helping others isn’t new either. I’ve volunteered quite a bit in my life, and I met my wife volunteering in her 4th-grade classroom. I’ve been married 18 years, and we have three boys. And I have a degree in mathematics.
If you watch the video above, it gives a short overview of this effort. You can also visit the website for more info and lots of blog posts. And I have a LOT of videos coming up on my social media accounts.
I’ve sacrificed a lot to help people I don’t even know. But I wouldn’t have come this far if I didn’t 100% believe I could make a difference in the homelessness crisis.
But now I need help to take this to the next level.
Because new ideas are hard to convince politicians, I need to raise funding (from the crowd) to hire experts to create additional documents, perform more research, and work with politicians to receive buy-in.
So to make this happen, I need your support. Please help as you can through donations, sharing with others, and following on social media.
