Oregon has one of the highest rates of homelessness amongst children, with more than 22,000 students lacking a proper home. That shocking statistic inspired a nonprofit to start converting retired school busses into fully functioning, attractive tiny houses on wheels for homeless children and their parents. The school busses-turned-homes, which are called “skoolies”, are a solution to homelessness as they are much faster to construct than affordable housing and less expensive than other options. They require no permit, zoning change, land acquisition or other forms of bureaucracy that might stop families from owning a proper home. On top of that, the interior of a skoolie looks amazing.
