Cruise ship converted into supported housing

Kenneth Capron is determined to find housing for the homeless, even if it means thinking outside the box – and outside of land.

Earlier this week, Capron addressed the city council of Portland, Maine about transforming a decommissioned cruise ship into a housing community for vulnerable people.

“We’re looking at four populations: the homeless population, the low-income population, the workforce population and immigrant population who all need housing,” Capron told WMTW. “They all need job skills training. We would offer that on board.”
