Weekly Meeting to Discuss Tiny Homes for Homeless in Chicago
• What we'll do Our on-going survey of C-THE (Chicagoland Tiny Home Enthusiasts) respondents have reported an interest in tiny homes to address homelessness. The Chicago Tiny House, is an organization committed to addressing and reducing homelessness in Chicago through the construction of tiny homes. ChicagoTinyHouse.org meets every Thursday and is inviting members and friends of C-THE to attend meetings and expand/propel their mission. Below is more about their mission. For more info visit www.chicagotinyhouse.org or call[masked] • According to the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, there are 46,425 homeless individuals in the city of Chicago, . 35,480 homeless families with children. • Chicago Public Schools (CPS) identified 18,117 homeless students during the[masked] school year. • According to Volunteers of America, Approximately 1,000 Veterans are homeless on any given night on the streets of Chicago. The Chicago Tiny House Inc, is the first non-profit of Chicago, consisting of all volunteers, dedicated to producing Tiny House Communities for the Chicago Homeless population. When we succeed, it will mark the first of its kind in Chicago Illinois to fight the struggle of homelessness. With homeless number rising drastically, and housing cost rising, we are taking on the project and will see to it that shelter remains a human right for all. Now say we wanted to build a new shelter, according to dc.gov it would cost between 840,000.00 and Ten million dollars just to create a building, this is estimated from current projects throughout the united states awarded by the Government. We can Build 40, up to code, tiny houses at $2,200.00 a piece, totaling 88,000 total cost to sustain the homeless population in a safe effective environment. That alone would give us $752,000 to procure land anywhere in Chicago from the lowest awarded grant to build a shelter from the government. There are hundreds of vacant lots in Chicago we propose to build on these lots. Creating a more productive environment instead of wasting land to crime. Not only are we cost-effective, we have case management infrastructure and outsourced help for any problem that could arise, Giving the area a secure sense of safety. All ten Tiny home communities across the nation are reporting crime in the Communities to be lower than the surround areas and surrounding residents are banning together to help the communities. It’s a win-win situation Come and support Chicago Tiny House Inc, Together we can FIGHT to keep HOMELESS AFFORDABLE HOUSING Affordable.
