Bernard Troyer ("Berns") is the BLOCK project manager for Facing Homelessness, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization from Seattle, Washington, that aims to contribute unique passions and skills toward the effort of ending homelessness. The BLOCK project, which started in 2017 as one of Facing Homelessness's programs, acknowledges that relationships are the building blocks for healing our communities. Through the BLOCK Project, members of the community are able to share their backyard with people who genuinely need it by hosting someone experiencing homelessness. Berns has built every home used in the BLOCK project, with each house designed to achieve the highest standard for sustainability in the built environment. He approached the project with his skills in construction, but his passion for ending homelessness, his heart, and his desire led the project to be successful. Recently, the Block Project has significantly reduced the construction time by prefabricating panels for the homes in the Block Shop and then assembling the house in the chosen backyard. What used to take 3-6 months now only takes six weeks or less, which is a big difference for people living outside in harsh conditions.For those that do not have the opportunity to host a BLOCK home in their backyard, don't worry! There is also the option to volunteer to build a BLOCK home, volunteer to landscape a backyard, fundraise for the project, procure essential home items, and donate directly.To learn more about Facing Homelessness, visit: https://facinghomelessness.org To learn more about the BLOCK Project, visit: https://www.the-block-project.orgVisit Operation Tiny Home at https://www.operationtinyhome.org/ A special thank you to Rodello's Machine for our theme, song "The World Inside."
