California GoFundMe Looks To Solve Homeless Problem With $3 Billion ‘City For The Homeless’

A California crowdfunding effort is looking to tackle the homelessness crisis in the state by creating a whole new city for the homeless.

The project is estimated to be a 300-acre city open exclusively to the homeless with dorm housing, communal televisions, and underground tunnels… all for a whopping $3 billion.

CBS News has more on the project:

Daune Nason, founder of the Folsom-based Citizens Again, released details Thursday of his plans for an estimated $3 billion private city equipped with amenities and services for a 150,000 “high-needs” population.

California’s homeless population in 2018 was almost 130,000, nearly a quarter of the national total, according to the most recent federal data.

“Qualified citizens” – those who meet as-yet undisclosed criteria – will be allowed to live in the city and are free to leave whenever they wish, says Nason, who adds, “Some might want to stay forever.”

According to a press release, the all-inclusive city will offer high-density housing in dormitories consisting of sleeping quarters and communal bathrooms with private showers.
