Our Mission Statement

In order to end the epidemic of dilapidated housing and poor living conditions, we intend to gather the support of local celebrities, organizations, and leaders in our community via a social media campaign to provide transportation for the impoverished so that they may find and maintain employment to gain the necessary funds to improve living conditions.

Facts and Statistics

In case you didn't know...

  • Between the years 2000 to 2012, the average percentage of jobs within the typical commute distance in cities fell by 7%,
  • The average city dweller can ride a public bus for 1.5 hours and will only be able to reach 30% of jobs in the city. This means it would take the average city dweller around 5 hours just to reach their job if they worked all the way across town.
  • The number of people living in dilapidated homes doubled from 1997 to 2005, therefore it is safe to assume that the said trend has continued over the last decade.

What We're Doing

By enlisting local celebrities, we intend to improve the public transit system and allow the impoverished access to areas with higher employment rates, which in turn would provide the necessary funds to improve their living conditions!
