A CHURCH in Hawaii believes it has found the solution for the state’s ongoing homelessness crisis: fibreglass igloos. The igloos are the latest idea in the islands as they struggle to deal with the United States’ highest rate of homelessness.

Honolulu is using shipping containers to house some people, while others are pushing traditional thatched “hale” homes. It is not the first time igloos or domes have been used for the homeless.

In LA, about 35 people lived in a cluster of them called Dome Village for about a decade.
