Sleeper bus helps give homeless people a place to sleep.
When was the last time you gave thanks for your bed? For homeless people, having a safe place to rest their head isn’t something to take for granted. That’s why a team of volunteers created the Rough Sleeper Bus to allow people a place to catch their Zs.
All human beings need restorative sleep. However, when you lack shelter, it’s difficult to fall into the restful state your body needs to heal. Hopefully, more cities will implement innovative measures such as the Rough Sleeper Bus to help homeless people get the rest they need to stay healthy.
What Is the Rough Sleeper Bus?
The Colchester’s Rough Sleeper Group raised money to convert a double-decker bus into overnight lodging for the city’s homeless people. To date, they’ve had 60 individuals sleep on the vehicle.
