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.

    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.
