Julie Akins, the founder of Forever Homes, Vehicles for Changes, said that 20,000 Oregon children are homeless. She is renovating retired buses into fully functioning houses on wheels for families in need. The buses are mobile, have solar power, 50-gallon water tanks, full kitchens and a shower in the bathroom. The converted homes can last as long as 30 years and cost about $25,000.
Medford, Ore. — A local non-profit is working to end homelessness one school bus at a time. ‘Forever Homes, Vehicles for Change’ is renovating retired buses into fully functioning houses on wheels.
“Every time I think about the bus, I just start smiling,” Founder and
local homeless advocate Julie Akins said. “I just started trying to
think of ways that I could help get kids under a roof, and honestly I
had a dream about a bus, and I woke up the next day, and started
researching, what I learned later is called a skoolie.”
The skoolie the group is working on is their first. Once renovated,
the buses will have water tanks, solar power, a kitchen, bathroom,
bedrooms and a living space.
“It’s an idea that’s just catching on like wildfire,” Leo Gorcey,
Director of Development said. “Buses can go anywhere from 20 to 30
years, so you’ve got buses that are being retired at 12 years who have
all these years of life left on them.”
To move in, applicants will need a driver’s license, a job, and a
child. The group is focusing its efforts on housing homeless children
and their families. Gorcey noted compared to a typical family home, it’s
much more cost effective.
“You can convert the bus into a really nice living space for about $15- to $18,000.”
For a dollar lease per month, plus rent for an RV park, struggling
families can save for a different home. They will also have the option
to buy the bus they’re in with $200 monthly payments. While the process
is long and laborious, Akins said the work will more than payoff.
“Whatever it takes to get kids under a roof and get a home cooked
meal, and have the kind of childhood that all of us want kids to have,
the kind of childhood we had,” Akins said. “There’s no reason not to

These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about.

Car ‘smash and grabs’ are common in California because thieves know they will not be prosecuted. In San Francisco, police-commission rules forbid police to chase thieves if they try to escape in a car. This, they say, is to cut down on high-speed chases and, therefore, is justified because it reduces accidents.
