Every now and then we have the opportunity to tell you about some really amazing people, and this is certainly the case of Gregory Kloehn, an artist from Oakland who really tries his best to make other people’s lives a little bit better.

In the following pictures you will see Gregory digging through trash, but he is not homeless. What he creates from garbage will totally blow your mind.

Gregory used to be a sculptor, but then he decided to try to make a difference using his skills: he started to dig through illegally dumped trash, in order to find the right materials to build little shelters for the homeless.
Now Gregory spends his days trying his best to change homeless people’s lives.

As you can see Gregory’s creations are just what it takes to save the homeless from the streets.

They are small and mobile too, since they have four wheels.

Living on a bench or in one of Gregory’s homes makes a huge difference.

These homes are also esthetically pleasing.

Gregory usually utilizes discarded wooden pallets to create the most part of the shelters.

For some of the homeless he helps, these little shelters are the best homes they’ve ever had.
