This story is a guest post by Janet Caldwell

Well, have I got a story for you -Rev. Jeff Obafemi Carr, once homeless himself, is living in Nashville’s FIRST micro model home until enough money is raised to build a village of micro-homes for the homeless.

Through the efforts Infinity Fellowship where he is the Lead Minister, Jeff is living in a 60 square foot micro-home and will continue to live there until enough funds are raised to build a “micro-village” for homeless to live in for FREE. This is a crowd-funded GoFundMe page initiative that has raised more than half of the $50,000 needed so far. Jeff has been living there for 26 days now while his wife and five children continue to live in their residence.

Please see media release below, as well as photos attached for more information.

This is an inspiring story of how a community of amazing people are helping this 83-year-old homeless widow enjoy her very own barn tiny home. Our big thanks goes to Jill Penley for sharing.

It’s a 12′ by 36′ yard barn that’s being renovated thanks to the help of local church members and a mission group in Hawkins County. And to her, this is a mansion since she has been homeless for the last 15 years of her life after losing her husband.

Originally the barn structure was 12′ by 24′ but they added on to it to make it 36′ so that a dedicated downstairs bedroom can be comfortably added. Please enjoy and re-share this inspiring story below. Thank you!

A group of local teens in Seattle are developing an eco-village called The Impossible City to benefit the local homeless people in the area.

They’ve even put together an Indiegogo fundraising campaign that has so far raised a total of $27,744 as I write this.

With the campaign scheduled to close on April 26, 2015, they’re just a few thousand dollars short of their goal to raise $32,205. And it looks like they’re going to make it!

This project is backed by Sawhorse Revolution which is a non-profit carpentry program for high school students in Seattle. So far they’ve designed a green house, micro home, solar hubs, communal kitchens, composting outhouses, and more for the village (all of which you can see sketches of below). Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you.

A compassionate group of people in San Luis Obispo County, California are creating a village of tiny homes to benefit their homeless neighbors.

Right now they’ve completed their model 7′ x 16′ Cabin on Wheels which they are lovingly calling The COW.

The plan is to develop a sustainable tiny house community for their unhoused neighbors who are under-served and have fallen into homelessness.

The villagers will be building their own tiny homes on wheels with the help of their team of volunteers from the community. People can help out by donating and/or by helping to build by volunteering their time. And everyone involved will get to learn from each other while helping one another. For about $2,500 a cabin on wheels can be built for a veteran in need or other homeless person.

Right now I want to give you an update on OM Build which is a tiny house community for the homeless in Madison, Wisconsin.

If you feel called to I’d also like to invite you to help support the growth and completion of the community with your own donation.

Occupy Madison is building tiny houses for people who don’t have homes. So far, they have completed the first three tiny houses, according to this article on the Huffington Post.

The next phase is to build six more tiny houses along with a community area with a bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, and more.
