They’re making a neighborhood of tiny houses just for veterans and it’s going to include 50 homes!
A group of people in Missouri are working together to build a community of 50 tiny houses that will serve at least 50 homeless veterans.
An organization called Veterans Community Project (VCP) is behind the cool new neighborhood, which is being built on an empty lot.
Three veterans started the nonprofit themselves and have partnered with other organizations to get the project done and help veterans.
Along with support including the tiny houses themselves and peer counseling, VCP will also work to provide each veteran with everything else a home requires.
WDAF“The goal would be to get veterans straight off the streets and hand them the keys to their full furnished tiny house (stocked with food), without the veteran having to go through the hassles of waiting for gas, electric, deposits, inspections, and voucher processes,” VCP wrote on their website about the project. “We would then stabilize them to educate and support them on reintegrating into society all while treating and addressing their housing barriers as we move them into permanent housing.”
WDAFThe 50 houses are being built by the volunteers themselves and will each be 20 feet long and 240 square feet, according to WDAF.
