Last night I helped a friend move and what I saw afterwards affirmed the desperate need for what we are fighting for. In the space of five minutes two homeless residents passed me by and one camped out in the windbreak of our building, with just a sleeping bag on cold concrete. It strengthens my will to do the right thing. I pray that by seeing this post more will join our project to get these individuals housed and supported. Tiny Houses may not be a perfect solution but it’s one solution.
The city has asked for help to resolve the issue of chronic homelessness and we have responded. They can’t say we’re not trying. We are against gentrification. We are against hiding our homeless. We believe taking care of homeless residents doesn’t reduce housing pricing. We aren’t afraid to help the homeless and by God we’re not going to let them die in the elements because they made bad life choices.
We have put together a viable solution that will help educate, protect, and serve our homeless residents no matter who and where they are. This is what we have come up with, this is what we are promoting, this is what we are volunteering our time for, this is what we care about. I am just one man, but I say that if we band together we will make a difference. I am a man with hope for the future and a man with friends who share this vision to improve our great city.
Our goal is to provide a complete outreach program through Tiny House Communities. We have a solution, Chicago. Embrace change with us.
This is Who We Are
