Leave it to the wonderful city of Kansas City, Missouri to develop a tiny home community for homeless veterans.A couple years ago we threw one helluva meetup at Kaufman Stadium teaming up with the Royals to raise over $10,000 for the KC Pet Project, so it comes as no surprise to see them supporting veterans in need.
The Village includes 50 tiny homes, each about the size of a studio apartment. Veterans are then provided with all the essential needs for daily life for absolutely free. Occupants also get a sense of privacy, security, and stability in their lives, to which these veterans couldn’t be more thankful. The project is still under construction as a community center, which will host classes and counseling aimed at helping veterans readjust to their lives and cope with trauma, will be completed in the coming months.
The Veterans Community Project is on a mission to eliminate veteran homelessness by providing transitional housing and enabling access to exceptional 360-degree service solutions.
Each tiny house costs about $10,000 to produce, making the village space and cost-effective.
An overview of the community.
Each house contains a full kitchen and bathroom.
Veterans couldn’t be happier with their new digs.
This community isn’t the first of it’s kind, as a similar village was constructed in 2013 in Olympia, Washington, for homeless community members. Fingers crossed communities like these continue to develop throughout the country.
