Tiny Home Villages offer dignity and shelter to unhoused

We recently published a second case study on a Tiny Home Village, Transitional Micro-Housing at Opportunity Village Eugene which offers an interesting contrast to our earlier study, Permanent Subsidized Housing in a Light Industrial Zone at Quixote Village. We are looking for volunteer researchers to help document additional tiny home villages, and contribute to a toolkit project. Is this you?
Tiny Home Villages offer dignity and shelter to unhoused

The next tiny home village planned in Eugene

We recently published a second case study on a Tiny Home Village, Transitional Micro-Housing at Opportunity Village Eugene which offers an interesting contrast to our earlier study, Permanent Subsidized Housing in a Light Industrial Zone at Quixote Village.  Both offer the dignity of private shelter to previously unhoused members of our community.  One is transitional - moving people off the street so they have a "safe place to be" while pursuing for more permanent life changes.  The other is intended to be permanent, a long-term intentional community providing all the comforts of home in an unconventional way.  Both have merit and have received tremendous attention and support as model solutions. Meanwhile other tiny villages have popped up around the country, including Dignity Village in Portland (perhaps the first!), OM Village in Madison Wisconsin, and some of the newest villages in Seattle - "Nickelsville" - as housing leaders experiment with ways to replace tent cities with affordable and livable alternatives.  We're looking for volunteer researchers who would continue this line of inquiry, and help document additional tiny home villages, and contribute to a toolkit project led by SquareOne Villages in Eugene.  Is this you?  Read the stories and get in touch with us at education@ecobuilding.org
