Critical Need For Affordable Housing
Chicago Tiny House
Tiny house communities for the homeless have emerged in major cities across the country and the city of Chicago is finally joining this forward-thinking movement.Chicago Tiny House, Inc. is committed to leading the way. But we need your help.
We are a registered nonprofit charity dedicated to providing a safe, supportive environment where people can move forward with dignity. By partnering with concerned citizens, neighborhood groups, and existing supportive services, Chicago Tiny House, Inc. will revitalize unused city lots, replacing them with intentional, sustainable communities of tiny houses as a smart alternative to dangerous campsite clusters.
“The Chicago Coalition for the Homeless… estimates that there are 80,000 homeless in the city, including those who are “doubled-up,” meaning they live with another person but have no home of their own.” (Chicago Tribune, Oct 2018) with a disproportionate number of those on the streets being veterans.
Our pilot program focuses on creating communities for veterans, but our vision includes affordable, innovative housing options for all populations with wraparound supportive services. And safe housing for all is just the beginning; we hope to change society’s view on homelessness to one of thoughtful and compassionate action.
