Hello everyone. Thank you very much for the interest in the concept called "Dignity Field." I'm including a link to the original document on Google. Please feel free to contact me, leave comments here, or share it! https://docs.google.com/…/19XE0CFLvK8ELo_kVV_Yx9a1VjD…/edit…
After toxicity studies are conducted, this could be a game changer for the construction of low cost, high value sleeping quarters.
Things like this: http://www.hefty.co/diy-ac/ can be employed to leverage the innovation happening across the globe. ht/ Lucky

There‘s now a YouTube video of the presentation: You‘ll have to narrate it yourself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNWlDCrE2GU
The presentation given on July 9, 2016 has been modified and is available for viewing. It should be "kindergarten" easy, and split into consumable timelines. Please post feedback here! Thank you. https://www.icloud.com/keynote/0OFxXHZ1IQ9K-BGIPWH0BWwAw… Just click the play button and go through it on your own.
Please watch this movie. It‘s available everywhere: http://www.povertyinc.org/ It has many, many, many direct relationships to our current system of homeless care.
Dignity Field empowers its members to participate in their own governance, and creates jobs and housing. We will provide more than services - we‘ll provide a future free of subsidies and handouts.
As excited as we are to get started, we‘re equally looking forward to the day we‘re no longer necessary. Please share.
Thanks everyone that made it to our first public meeting. There were about 15 in attendance, including a judge, individuals from the Commission on Homelessness, several concerned City of Dallas residents, neighborhood representatives, a previous member of the Dallas City Counsel, and more.
The next step is to integrate the feedback and Q&A into the concept materials.
The next public meeting will be in approximately two weeks. We hope to see you there. Thank you!
Dignity Field could have as much as 350 acres to implement a similar program, and provide jobs to the region's homeless population.
Momentum. Now that we've had a month of the Commission on Homelessness, it's clear that another solution is needed. Dignity Field is a great partner to the system installed today. Thanks to David Goins for coming to The cedars on the 4th of July. http://www.wfaa.com/…/cedars-resident-hopes-digni…/263447374
Don't miss the City of Dallas Commission on Homelessness meeting Tuesday evening, July 5th: https://www.facebook.com/events/970283776431330/
Please join us for the first public information session for Dignity Field, Saturday July 9th, at 11AM!
We'll spend the first 15 minutes describing the concept of Dignity Field, it's genesis, and its future.
Following the presentation, we’ll break down a few of the components of the project. The goal is to better understand the details of bringing these ideas to life, and to help put some budget numbers on paper....
We’d love to have you participate. All of you, whether you’re in favor of the concept or not. Your input is invaluable.
More details to come. Location is the 17th floor of 1910 Pacific Avenue. Please RSVP if you plan on attending! See you Saturday.
