Building a City to End
Chronic Street Homelessness
In the news:
Citizens Again is a project to build a city for America’s entire chronic homeless population.
By having a single location instead of thousands of shelters across the country, the City can save billions of tax dollars every year, it will be quicker to implement, and it will provide a better life for the nation’s homeless.
A Growing and Expensive Crisis
Despite decades of promises made by politicians to end homelessness, the crisis keeps growing and costing taxpayers more every year.
“To end the crisis, we need to focus on solving their problems first instead of the problems they cause society.”
Founder, Citizens Again
DESIRED PLACE TO LIVE
“A lot of tragedies happen that cause people to become homeless, and it would be great to have a second chance.”
To create a destination and community they want to live in, the City will have all the amenities of a city with a 150,000 population, along with necessary supportive services specific for the citizens.
By building from the ground up, the City can provide specialized facilities, improve safety and security, streamline operations, and use long-lasting building materials, unlike previous housing programs.
A Complete City for a Complete Solution
It will be a city they’ll want to live in, a community they’ll want to be part of, and for those that desire, an opportunity to gain life skills to integrate back into society.

Building 1 Location, Instead of 4,000,
Makes All This Possible
By building a single location for a large population, economies of scale can be achieved allowing for benefits no other effort can offer.
A Place to Thrive
Citizens Again has uniquely identified a deeper understanding of what’s needed for people to thrive, not just survive. It goes way beyond today’s humanity minimums of shelter, clothes, and food. It’s called the 20 Building Blocks of Humanity, and it will encompass every aspect of service for the City.
Let’s Start the Process
A variety of funding sources will be used to create and run the City, starting with crowdfunding to create the documents and research reports necessary to obtain next-level funding.
PLANNING FOR 1,000 YEARS
Comprehensive Master Plan
The City is a long-term solution and will be designed and built as such.
All aspects of the City, including land use, buildings, logistics, processes, innovations, citizen life, community development, and much more, are documented in the Comprehensive Master Plan.
It’s a highly detailed plan with over 2 years in the making and is still a work in progress with over 700 pages (this website has the equivalent of 40 book pages of content).
