Across the world, housing has become unaffordable for many and homelessness is increasing, particularly during the global pandemic. A home is the foundation for health and safety. Without homes, people cannot thrive. President of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Amber Fogarty, Dmitri Julius, Chief People Officer of ICON and special guest Tim Shea, the first person to live in a 3D printed home and resident at Community First! Village, discuss how we can collectively create an environment of healing, stability and a renewed sense of dignity while also scaling the number of homes needed to house the homeless leveraging breakthrough technology, innovations and above all, love.
