From A Tiny Home for Good:

The Issue

Well maintained, dignified, and safe housing is a struggle to provide for those who rely on day-to-day labor or temporary assistance as is the case with many facing homelessness. Instead individuals turn to the streets and emergency shelters as permanent residencies.

Finding A Solution

A Tiny Home for Good, Inc. builds and manages tiny homes. Built on vacant city lots, the homes are 300 square feet and are equipped with all the amenities of a regular home. Each home is rented to one individual who has faced homelessness. Rent is determined on a sliding scale dependent on the resident’s income. Each resident is connected with a professional care manager through a partnership with one of the several care management organizations in the Syracuse area.

    These homes are wonderful! I like the idea of duplexes and triplexes if the lot size allows. Small garden space is important, too.

      Yes I think gardens can be so therapeutic! — Tiny House Talk Team

    Most every community would benefit from developments like this for those on the financial edge or those who are homeless. I realize some people would not do any better if they had a home like this. We need to focus on those who would. A better society is good for all.

    Great job, A Tiny Home for Good! It is so wonderful to see people stepping up to assist their fellow community members! I am getting involved in a co-housing project here in Anacortes, WA. Hoping to move my tiny home there in the coming year and help create a community that will meet needs here. Co-housing is another way to address many community concerns: elder care, homelessness, single-parent homes, environmental conservation.
