I want to show you how if you want to you can help create Emerald Village which is an upcoming tiny house village community designed to empower the homeless in Eugene, Oregon.
The same group of people that has successfully OpportUNITY Village in Eugene. I love what they’re doing and how they’re doing it so much that I’m participating in the fundraising (and you can too) for their next tiny house village.
In case you’re able and wanting to help I wanted to show you how but obviously please don’t feel obligated because I really just want to show you how amazing this is.
So enjoy the article and photos below and re-share this post if you feel drawn to do so because it’s a great opportunity to help spread the Tiny House Movement in the way that truly helps those in need.

Proposed Plan for Emerald Village (What You Can Help Us Build)
Images: OpportUNITY Village
“Emerald Village will provide a grassroots model for long-term, affordable housing that is more accessible, sustainable, and independent of government subsidy.
We plan to build on our success rather than duplicate it. While Opportunity Village focuses on transitional housing, Emerald Village will provide more accessible and sustainable places to transition to.
The housing will be roughly twice as big at 120-150 sq. ft. with a kitchenette, heat, and electrical hook-ups. Similar to Opportunity Village, the micro-housing will be supported by common gathering, kitchen, and restroom facilities.
Residents will tentatively make monthly payments of around $150 to $200 toward the value of their tiny house—building an asset for the future. If a resident decides to leave the village, they will then be able to sell the equity accrued back to the non-profit.”
