City Builds Tiny Homes And Gives Them To Veterans For Free
Cities are faced with homelessness and poverty across the globe.
And while it’s a sad state of affairs, it’s somewhat difficult to provide food and shelter for everyone who seeks it.
But those who do take the time and initiative to help people in need, are slowly but surely changing the lives of those who need it most.
An organization in Missouri, United States called Veteran’s Community Project is one such group that deserves tons of praise and recognition for the amazing things that they have done.
Their aim is to build small houses for homeless veterans so that they can give back to an array of heroes who have gone above and beyond to help them and their country.
Not only will the small homes give these homeless veterans a place to sleep and call their own, but they will also be offered free counseling, and job training.
The VCP’s website states, “The goal would be to get veterans straight off the streets and hand them the keys to their fully furnished tiny house (stocked with food), without the veteran having to go through the hassles of waiting for gas, electric, deposits, inspections, and voucher processes.
We would then stabilize them to educate and support them on reintegrating into society all while treating and addressing their housing barriers as we move them into permanent housing.”
Additionally, the website says, “Going from extreme isolation to extreme socialization can be very overwhelming and cause unwanted outcomes.
We believe that handing the veteran the keys to their own home and letting them socialize at their own pace is key to a successful outcome.”
The construction began in 2015 and is said to be ready by the winter of 2017.
To those involved, thank you for being selfless human beings, and thank you for serving these heroes.
It’s truly amazing how far a little ingenuity can go. Especially for veterans who put their lives on the line and fought for the country.
