Millionaire builds tiny homes for people in need and provides jobs to reduce homelessness in his town

Homelessness is a major issue in every city around the world, and something that most governments struggle to manage. A Canadian millionaire’s homeless community project decided to tackle this problem head on.

Marcel LeBrun is an entrepreneur and founder of a successful media monitoring company from Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. After selling his company for eight figures, he allocated a substantial amount to address homelessness in his community.

LeBrun explains the concept of the project to help the homeless.

In 2023, data from the Human Development Council showed that in New Brunswick there has been a 25% increase in homeless individuals; 1,829 individuals experienced homelessness for at least one day; and 654 people experienced chronic homelessness, meaning that they were homeless for at least one year.

Though the numbers may be far greater in bigger cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York, LeBrun saw an opportunity to make a difference and improve the lives of those facing the challenges of homelessness.
