Building Hope

Communal housing projects promote charitable causes through interaction

Implications - With charitable causes often seeming overwhelming to participate in for the average individual, efforts to make involvement more communal and interactive help encourage action. Projects that emphasize building and community involvement provide ordinary individuals with the chance to get involved in a more physically active manner, utilizing cooperative efforts to entice people on a more approachable scale.
