We are raising money to build tiny houses for the Low Income Housing Institute. Our annual goal is to help build one tiny house village per year in the greater Seattle area. When you donate to our GoFundMe the money goes directly to the Low Income Housing Institute, we then get the materials and then the crew builds tiny homes that are delivered to local sites.
Why Tiny House Villages Are A Great Asset To Fight the Homeless Issue?
In partnership with the City of Seattle, faith communities, and building trade organizations throughout the State of Washington, the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) is one of the largest providers of tiny house village shelters in the nation, ensuring that people’s experience in homelessness is as safe, dignified, and brief as possible.
Tiny houses offer tremendous benefits over tents – they are safe, weatherproof, and lockable – and the communities that we help build allow residents to reclaim their dignity and get on a path to housing in a supportive village environment.
Each tiny house has electricity, overhead light, and a heater. Each tiny house village has kitchen and restroom facilities, onsite showers and laundry, a counseling office, and a welcome/security hut where donations of food, clothing, and hygiene items can be dropped off.
The Case For Tiny Houses During A Pandemic?
Tiny house villages cost less than extended hotel stays, can remain in place for years, and can help flatten the curve of disease transmission.
