On any given night in our community, more than 1,300 people* report they are homeless.
As of January 23, 2017, some 1,318 people reported experiencing homelessness.*
The Tiny Home Village will provide safe, dignified and cost-effective transitional housing for carefully-vetted single adults, couples, and veterans who are on the path from homelessness to self-sufficiency. In addition, it will foster teamwork, responsibility, self-governance and the skills its residents need to regain their self-confidence
In 2016, voters approved a $2 million general obligation bond to fund development of the Tiny Home Village. Since that time, a dedicated ad hoc group of volunteers has met regularly to assess potential sites and develop a framework for how the Tiny Home Village will be built, managed and sustained. Additional bond funding is being requested this fall to complete construction of the first site selected for the Tiny Village site.
