Update On The HomeMore Project’s Makeshift Traveler

SAN FRANCISCO — On February 4th, 2022, The HomeMore Project announced their updated timeline of releasing the Makeshift Traveler. They have surpassed their initial goal of raising $30,000 to provide short-term aid for individuals experiencing homelessness. This innovative, solar-powered backpack is anticipated to reach at least 10,000 individuals experiencing homelessness in San Francisco. Some features of the Makeshift Traveler include a pillow, radio, charging ports, and an informational brochure explaining how to utilize the pack best. 

The HomeMore Project is a non-profit organization that seeks to provide individuals experiencing homelessness with tools and resources to help them transition back into society. They have raised a little over $50,000 this past December and additionally collaborated with a new manufacturer, resulting in a new timeline for this backpack in the making. The distribution plan went from donating the first 100 units by the end of March 2022 to donating the first 500 units by June 1st, 2022. 

“We want to position the Makeshift Traveler as a staple for what we can do as an operation in hopes of building connections with individuals who are interested in participating in our long-term vision for The HomeMore Project being our HomeMore Campus,” said The HomeMore Project. 

This improvement in the timeline for production has made a considerable impact not just for The HomeMore Project but also for those experiencing homelessness.
