This organization is taking serious steps to improve the lives of America’s war heroes. Thanks to generous donations from community members and organizations, they continue to build a collection of small houses that homeless veterans that can live in for free until they get on their feet and afford their own home.
The Veterans Community Project is a non-profit that is building a specialized community network of tiny homes and services dedicated to supporting every man and woman who served — also known as Tiny Houses for Homeless Vets. The Veterans Community Project has built over 30 homes in the Kansas City area and plans to increase that number in the future. This effort has been noted by other communities that want to help homeless veterans. The Veteran, when given a home in the village, would essentially get to keep everything in the home. So, when they transition out of the village into their next home, they can take their fridge, bed, towels, etc., along with them.
