Someone Lives Here

The story of Khaleel Seivwright, a Toronto carpenter who made portable “tiny shelters” to provide safer, more stable housing for the city’s homeless population during the first winter of the COVID pandemic. From a one-man operation started in his garage, the project grew into a 40-person volunteer crew supported by over $200,000 in donations. His efforts attracted international media attention and strong opposition from city officials.
