Sister Of NEW is not only a construction training program for women, but also a new fresh way to HELP homelessness: Consider SoNEW Pocket homes the first step into housing. Even the name SoNEW Pocket homes was created to stay away from the negativity that comes from the word shelter. We cannot fix homelessness using the same tactics that have been in place for years. Pocket homes will help transform homeless people that have been in the streets for years. Most homeless people grew accustomed to their freedom, therefore making it difficult to live or get help from shelters.
