A nine-year-old builds houses from scratch and they aren't the kind for dolls.
When Hailey Fort was just five-years-old, it broke her heart to see a homeless man on the street. After asking her parents how she could help him, she's been assisting the homeless by providing food and housing ever since.
Hailey of King Fort, Washington is building a mobile shelter for her homeless friend Edward and others like him. She plans to build 12 this year.
Edward recently lost his job working at the local supermarket and Hailey made it her goal to make sure he could sleep someplace warm and dry.
Hailey's mother helped her make sure that the shelters wouldn't cause a problem and talked to their city ordinance, but the exact location of the shelter has yet to be determined.

I don't really want him to be rained on by all the bad weather we get here,' said Hailey.
'He's really nice,' she added. 'He's easy to talk with.'
WRCBTV reports that Hailey is skilled at using power tools like nail guns, hydraulic staplers and electric drills.
She builds the homes almost entirely by herself under the supervision of her mother.
She'll ask for help from an adult if she's using something more dangerous like a power saw.
Hailey's grandfather is a contractor and sometimes she'll call him to ask him his advice about building. Her homes are well insulated so that they can keep the homeless warm.
Hailey plans to grow 250 pounds of food for the homeless this year and will donate toiletries along with 10 P.O. Boxes thanks to the money she raises on her Go Fund Me page

Edward is not the only homeless man Hailey plans to help.
At 6-years-old, Hailey started a garden for the homeless in her community.
According to the Facebook page for Hailey's Harvest, her goal for the 2015 season is to grow 250 pounds of food in addition to handing out 1,000 toiletries, 500 feminine hygiene products, 100 coats, and as many sleeping shelters as she can find space for.
She also is donating 10 P.O Boxes that will be paid for one year so that homeless people can have their mail sent there while they are applying for jobs and getting back on their feet.
