This story from 2017 is updated with this news from Florida where in this tiny home village operated by the Clara White Mission, veterans can have a place to call home and be able to develop a strong community and support system together.

In fact, veterans will be the ones who actually build the houses, such as the one shown here, which with an interior of 200 square feet, once inside, doesn’t seem “tiny” at all.

 

A group of neighbors are coming together to build homes for veterans.

Tiny homes.

“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,” the Veterans Community Project explains. “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.”
