Isn’t it cruel to force someone to live in a tiny house?  Why don’t we just build more affordable housing?

In a perfect world, that would be the best solution.  However, the “homeless problem” is not just one problem with one solution.  The reality is that many deserving homeless persons are now on a wait list for permanent housing for several years.  In the meantime, they have very limited options including living in tents that are not warm, dry, or secure- and THAT’s cruel.

Building tiny homes is a relatively inexpensive, scalable, and achievable solution to get our homeless neighbors off the ground, out of the tents, and into a secure space until permanent affordable housing can be obtained.
