City Won’t Let Veterans Stay Homeless, Builds Tiny Homes. Gives Them To Vets For Free


One of the most inspiring things that happens in a community is when people reach out to help one another. This group in Missouri is doing an awesome thing to ensure an inclusive community by helping to reduce homelessness.

Nobody deserves to live on the streets but sometimes people don’t have any other choice. Although there are homeless shelters, charities, and programs to help reduce homelessness, there’s always room for improvement. And not everyone on the street is young or suffering with addiction like many people assume. In fact, a large amount of people without a home are actually veterans who have served in times of war.


One awesome organization in Missouri called Veterans Community Project, or VCP, have built an entire village of tiny houses for homeless veterans to live in. The houses, which were built on about four acres, are roughly 240 square feet. Construction began in 2015, and the goal is for the village to be ready for residency by 2017.

The VCP’s objective is to get homeless veterans off the street and straight into housing without having to go through the process of waiting for electricity, or having to go through an extensive process. The houses would also come fully equipped with food giving the veterans as much help as they need.
