Hailey Ford， a 9-year-old girl from Bremerton， Washington， is hard at work building 11 small homes for the homeless.
She has been putting in weeks of work on the shelters， drilling down bases， installing windows and cutting insulation.“It just doesn‘t seem right that there are homeless people，” Hailey told KING 5 News. “I think everyone should have a place to live.”
一连好几个礼拜她都一直在建造着这些庇护所，打地基，安窗户，裁隔板。“现在还有无家可归的人，这说不过去啊，”海丽告诉KING 5 News，“我认为每一个人都应该有住的地方。”
Hailey has received a grant for the homes， which will be put in the town‘s permanent Tent City and be open to the homeless later this year.
She got the idea after meeting a homeless man named Edward on the street while out shopping for groceries with her mother。They gave the man a sandwich, but Hailey got to thinking about how she could do more and continue providing food to the needy, so she set up Hailey‘s Harvest, a garden with its own Facebook page, to grow vegetables。
“I said sure， thinking it would last a week. It’s been four years and she still delivers veggies to the homeless every week，” her mom， Miranda， told nonprofit Together Rising.
Hailey soon branched out into building， and has been providing updates on her progress with the shelters， along with photos of herself hard at work.
