To foster a community, and advocate, for those in need of shelter
Land for the Homeless is a New Jersey based 501(c)3 public charity founded by Kyler Dineen, with the help of Kelly Lynch, which is working to buy a plot of land and construct a community for the homeless to be able to live upon legally and in peace. The project itself comes in response to the governmental closure and destruction of the Lakewood Tent City. With shelter overcrowding continuing to be a serious issue across America, this project aims to create a low-cost solution to a very serious problem with room for expansion potential. The philosophy behind the project is that "a tent is better than a park bench" and that the homeless problem will not be solved by simply trying to brush away those who are unsheltered but rather can be partially alleviated through the establishment of a well maintained and supportive environment for those affected to seek refuge.
The full vision for the project is detailed in the organization’s nonprofit plan which can be found here:
