Meet Hailey Fort, a little girl who's doing something amazing to benefit the homeless in her community.

Hailey's working closely with her family to build shelters for those in need. During her free time, she constructs mobile shelters and even grows food for the less fortunate.

Hailey Fort is making the world a better place, one shelter at a time.

When she was 5 years old, Hailey was walking with her mother when she spotted a homeless man.

That's when her mother decided to help Hailey create shelters and grow food for those in need.

With the help of her parents, Hailey created Hailey's Harvest.

From the foundation of the shelter to the insulation, Hailey does it all.

She builds shelters for them, grows food and supplies them with toiletries to keep themselves clean.

Hailey's Harvest managed to raise over $15,000 in just seven days.

It looks like Hailey will be able to continue helping the homeless.

This year alone, Hailey plans to grow about 250 pounds of food to give to the hungry. She also plans to build 12 shelters.
