16 homeless people have a safe place to stay inside a single 40-foot shipping container. The container rooms are heated, lit and provide hot water, while they also come equipped with smoke detectors and bathrooms that are accessible to the handicapped. The shipping container is subdivided into eight rooms for the homeless with two beds per room. There is also an office for two trained staff members so someone could be on site to admit and care for the homeless seeking shelter.
