(TruthSeekerDaily) The sight of a man dumpster diving could make one assume he’s needy, but this man sifting through the trash is anything but.

Gregory Kloehn from Oakland isn’t homeless, in fact he helps the homeless through his incredible art curated from waste he finds tossed aside. He designed a brilliant idea of building tiny houses for the homeless and his impact is huge.

Gregory digs through illegally dumped trash and goes dumpster diving.

He uses what he collects to build small, one room shelters
for the homeless.

Not only from the media, but from the people he helps as well.

The “little homeless homes” are about the size of the sofa.

But, something that small can mean the world to someone
living on the streets.

Each of the homes are built with a pitched roof, so rain will run
right off of them.

They also have wheels, so their owners will be able to wheel
them around if they need to.

The foundation he usually uses are discarded wooden pallets.

At first, as an artist, he made sculptures.

But peddling his creations got old.

Since he focused on housing, Gregory knows what he creates
is being used.

A homeless woman he knows well, Wonder, raves about what he does.

The small shelter Gregory built for her was the best house
she’s had in 5 years.

His focus seems to be on helping them build homes…

Even when they don’t have a conventional “house” to work with.

At first he was just building tiny homes to sell.

One day, a homeless man came by his studio asking for a tarp.

All Gregory had was a tiny wooden frame he was working on, equipped
with a built-in kitchen, water tank and a small trap for human waste.

He then realized… it was a home that this man could use.

Someone could use it and it would change their life.

He can’t build houses for all of Oakland’s homeless.

However, he doesn’t intend to stop building any time soon.

He’s thought about starting classes, teaching others how to make them.
“A lot of people who hear about what I’m doing want to get involved,” he
said. “Maybe we meet someplace and put a couple homes together.”

The homeless population is on the rise nationwide, especially in the financially challenged state of California. Many have been left without a roof over their heads, but Kloehn’s plan to change their plight is generously genius. Rather than selling his masterpieces to fill the abodes of those well off, he uses his creativity to transform the lives of others who genuinely need it.

Kloehn’s efforts have encouraged contributions from others who are coming forward on his Facebook page to donate money to his cause.
