The homeless call this a bed and everyone loses:
Corporates lose income, security and kudos from the community.
The individual loses their health, comfort and protection. In time it robs them of their hope that things can change. It locks them in & keeps them there until quite literally, it becomes their death bed.
All of society loses: every time we leave a person do die on the street, we become less human ourselves. No-one should die on the street!

U-turn’s 20-year old program gives homeless people the skills to overcome homelessness. It allows graduates to get a bed of their own. Supporting the Benches to Beds program allows U-turn to bring their solution to more cities across the world: More rehab centres, more skills training programmes, and more work opportunities at social enterprises operated by U-turn.
