We’re having a t-shirt sale this month!
All proceeds help fund the building of our tiny house prototype! Building an example of a tiny house is our first priority. We need this in order for people to get a better understanding of what they look like and how the interior layout is designed. This will help people know what they are giving towards. All of our tiny houses will be handicap accessible which is incredibly important to us.
Our first project will be geared towards housing vets in tiny houses. We have a number of social service organizations who have agreed to help us with support services and financial backing.
Statistics on Homeless Veterans
In April 2017, the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless released an analysis of how many Chicagoans are homeless, per the 2015 census: 82,212.
Chicago reported the largest increase in veteran homelessness between 2009 and 2016, a 20.2% increase, up by 101 people. The city reported that 10.2% of those who were homeless in 2016 were veterans, up from 7% in 2015 and 9% in 2014.
This information came from the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless in their FAQ section. The demographics are astonishing. There has been a decrease overall in homelessness in Chicago, but the number of homeless veterans is rising steadily. Take some time and visit the CCH website. It keeps up with the latest statistics and provides a number of resources.
Every t-shirt sold goes toward helping a vet find a home.
