It would also be a great way to give people employment opportunities! And make responsible homes that accommodate the needs of the people who will use them. You could design the homes based on local resources, such as aiming windows towards the areas in which sun shines so the house doesn't need as much electricity, growing gardens for people to take care of, make recreational areas for children, easy access for disabled residents, etc.
