Can building improvements support a homeless shelter become self-sustainable?

Emmaus St Albans is a charity which provides up to 33 homeless people with a safe home environment and the opportunity to work. We worked with the residents to evaluate opportunities for expansion. Through a needs assessment and a series of design workshops we created a vision for extended retail space, which is now under design... and we'll be returning to assess the impact.
