An awkwardly-shaped piece of city-owned property went from an abandoned lot, to a colorful village of 39 tiny homes built to give temporary shelter to some of the city’s homeless population. Each home is 64 square feet, and there are shared laundry facilities on site.
Units cost $7,500 each, including labor and materials, and were shipped as ready-to-assemble stacks of panels from builder Pallet Shelter in Everett, Washington. The total cost of the project was about $5 million, according to Kerkorian’s office, with the majority spent on re-routing water, power, and sewer lines to the site. Hope of the Valley gets a $55 per person daily reimbursement from the city to cover three meals and social services for residents.
The best news? This isn’t the last village LA is working on! What do you think?

Awesome!!! People looking after others who have suffered misfortune. Homelessness. Drug addiction. All manner of things. Don’t look down on them… remember, some of Hollywood elite suffer from addictions, the only difference they can afford to pay for the drugs, can afford to pay for the treatments. Others are not so fortunate.
Congratulations Pallet Shelter. Congratulations Hope of the Valley. Your work does not go unnoticed.
I’m sure there will be those that have many negative things to say about this community, but I think this is great. These homes have elec., ac, cross ventilation windows, locking doors, shelving and beds – probably the possibility of a dorm type fridge and an elec. heater if needed. There are so many in need, many because of no fault of their own. I’m hopeful that some non profit organizations will step in to offer counseling, medical assistance and job training/locating assistance. We are our brothers keepers. Bravo City of LA, you are saving lives and giving hope to those in need.
Providing for others is what God wants us to do. It’s time that we provide help for the homeless. It’s not the life they choose. Thanks to all those who help others.
Thank you a million times over to all who made this happen for those less fortunate. I am thrilled to see this, and hope that so many rich and wealthy will step up and help this type of project go forward to help those in need. Finally something that makes me believe in the human race……..if I had just a hundredth of the money spent on shoes and purses of the KKK clan I would have millions to build this in my city. Yet O and such need shoes and purses …………..
