From Tiny House Greensboro:

We are a 501c3 Nonprofit organization. We are working to develop Tiny House Communities that will consist of 3 – 6 units on individual lots. Tiny Houses will be rented to residents based on their income and current situation. THG will work with local nonprofits housing organizations that will assist in qualifying potential residents. Residents will be required to participate in construction and other volunteer opportunities with THG. Tiny Houses Greensboro intent is to be a long term transitional housing for those experiencing homelessness. We are working with the City of Greensboro to develop land, building codes, and zoning. THG is working to create funding options and community partnerships among many other issues that impact future progress.

    Welcome neighbor!
    But maybe housing for the homeless doesn’t need to be on wheels? And who maintains these wood structures? Paints them every few years?
    You get much more bang for the buck by building large structures that hold more people. Built some of those in Florida.

      I think the wheels idea is because it’s more transient. Allows people to move if they need or want to — Tiny House Talk Team

    To jm above. Tiny Homes for the homeless are meant to house these people until they get back on their feet. They won’t live in these forever. Once the homeless person has a tiny home, job training can begin. When the person moves out of the tiny house, it is cleaned, painted (maintained) for the next person. It’s on wheels to be moved from one location to the next. You may get more bang for the buck by making large structures to hold more people, but that’s called inner city living and once there, it’s nearly impossible to get out. Better to have six tiny homes in one area with a counselor, medical help and job training. Not every homeless person gets a tiny home, I’m sure there is a qualification process. I’m all for this approach.

    Bravo, well done, nice size for good moral.

    Great basic idea, but WOOD??!!: Those things are going to be filthy and uninhabitable in no time at all. What’s up with balancing little washcloths on that shelf, why not a normal small cupboard? The sheer impracticality of the design and materials is outrageous. Try again.

      Wood floors? They are typically easier to clean — all you need is a broom. — Tiny House Talk Team

    I TOTALLY agree with an applaud the efforts of this non-profit organization to offer transitional housing to homeless folks and I hope each and every state is paying attention and will do the same. We need to assume a personal responsibility to take care of our own. No one should be homeless, starving, or suffering in America!

  • Susanne November 22, 2016, 6:05 pm

    Wonderful! But I would be concerned about the “transition” part of it… For many people a TH is where they would need to stay permanently….they could end up back on streets with the jump in their costs of living expenses after leaving the TH…oh that worries me!

    Great idea for homeless veterans too. I work for the VA and finding transition housing is a real challenge. I can see adding a shuttle service so the residents can get to training, counseling and medical appointments. Thank you for sharing.

      It would be great for veterans! — Tiny House Talk Team

    As one who does not believe we do not do enough for our homeless, I am happy to see them living in any thing other than cardboard boxes..! How can I say this, well I believe I have that right to speak on the subject as I was once one too with out a dwelling….!

    • Natalie Natalie November 24, 2016, 11:06 am

      I’m very happy people are working on getting them good places to live :) — Tiny House Talk Team

    There are many reasons for homelessness. Many solutions are required. And there isn’t enough money and volunteers. The large dormatory-type housing helps ensure drug use and other harmful habits aren’t taking place. They need some structure. What good is giving them a tiny house and allowing them to kill themselves with drugs and alcohol?

    • Natalie Natalie November 25, 2016, 6:59 am

      JM, like you said “there are many reasons for homelessness.” Substance abuse isn’t always one of them. — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Michele November 28, 2016, 10:27 pm

    This is the first tiny house for the homeless that has everything. A kitchen and a full bath, instead of just a box to keep the rain off.

    I wonder of government grants might be utilized for a project of this type.

      That’s a great thought, Michele! — Tiny House Talk Team
