My idea is to engage big name mentors such as Jamie Oliver, Jamie Drury and James Packer to help build an apartment complex for the homeless, The residents will have employment with the complex eg. Cook, waitress, accountant, cleaners etc.

We need to put the spotlight on homelessness, the mentors would help achieve this. The residents would obviously need social services counselling, rehabilitation etc. They would receive vocational training and be employed within the complex. They would run an alcohol free restaurant and gym. Other areas of employment include interior decorating, gardening, cleaning, accounting, committee members etc. Residents would also participate in music,yoga and meditation.
