Tiny Homes for the Houseless
Cities experiencing booming populations and skyrocketing housing prices are also facing the challenge of caring for an increasing number of citizens experiencing houselessness. These cities need new models for affordable housing that can move quickly, integrate into the existing landscape, and provide a safe and stable place for people to get back on their feet. Innovators from around the country are using “tiny houses” grouped into villages as a new way to support houseless individuals. Learn from three organizations using tiny houses as a new and more nimble way to provide community-based transitional housing to our most vulnerable citizens.
