Have you ever thought that the idea you had while you were washing your hair or cleaning your car could be an idea that will change the world? Most of the time, new inventions and achievements in the world stemmed from single ideas that came from one individual while they were just going about their daily lives. They did not sit down for hours on end with a pen and paper in their hands trying to think of a way change the course of history, and they did not mind-map all of the things wrong in the world and come up with solutions.
Instead, they were simply doing them and getting on with their lives when inspiration struck – just like an apple falling on your head! That’s exactly what happened when TK Devine saw the homeless epidemic around his hometown of Los Angeles. In fact, Devine was one of the 55,000 homeless people in the city that had struggled under the weight of the financial crash. He was lucky enough to have this van to his name and have a roof over his head each night, but there were some people who didn’t have that option.
It took one, hard look at the tents adorning the streets and the people sleeping rough on the sidewalk for Devine to put two and two together. He knew that there must be a way to solve the homeless problem on the streets of LA without having to find thousands of dollars and investing in charities and homeless shelters.
He knew that there must be a way to give them somewhere to live that wouldn’t cost the same price as your average apartment. That’s how he invented something truly amazing.

It all starts with one single idea, and as soon as that idea takes form, it can change the lives of thousands. So, when TK Devine looked at rows upon rows of homeless people living on the streets of Los Angeles, he knew that had to do something about the 55,000 people who were homeless in 2017 alone – because he was one of them. Those numbers couldn’t continue to rise, and something needed to be done about the homeless problem. Thankfully, he had just the perfect plan crafted.
