    I want to create a 24hr non profit business that provides people with:

    1. Showers
    2. Laundry
    3. Toilets
    4. Wifi
    5. Outlets to charge appliances

    I'm thinking I can charge people $5 a month for membership

    What do you guys think of this?

    Sounds like Planet Fitness with a washing machine.

    You mean like a residence?

    It would cost more than $5 per person per month just to sanitize everything.

    My buddy owned an abandoned warehouse in Chicago and he charged homeless people $50 a month to sleep there in the winter and it had nothing like that. He made a killing too.

    Its Itst going to turn into a stinking homeless camp.

    I know you mean well with your idea and I can tell that you care about people less fortunate than you, however you are making a huge mistake in thinking this way.

    If you really want to help homeless people stop enabling their CHOSEN lifestyle. Everytime you see a homeless person they are usually begging for change in front of businesses. Businesses that pay people for their labor.

    This country has lots of programs to help people in need, and there is still plenty of work. Anyone that is on the streets is there by choice.

    Depending on where you are you'd need a thousand members a month to break even and that place would be like a refugee camp.

    Seems like you would need a lot of members to make that work. Would the washer/dryer be free?
