Although recent statistics show that the homeless population is decreasing, there should still be a cause for concern that this will change. There has been a decrease in affordable housing units and a r furthering unaffordability for the many with low income. 

Stats

Why tiny houses?

  • Tiny houses are environmentally friendly, a smaller footprint,
  • More energy efficient
  • They are easier to maintain

Will it be like living in a box?

  • No.  Our units will be attractive, functional housing that we think people will be proud to call home.

Isn’t it important to increase homeownership in our neighborhoods?

  • Absolutely.  But the fact is, not everybody is in a position to buy a home right now.  We’re focused on supportive housing because that’s where our expertise is, and because we know that having a secure home and a stable rental history will help more people move into home ownership.

Has this been done before?

  • Yes.  Cities across the country are are building tiny houses for homeless folks both for rental and homeownership.  We know and love that New Orleans is a unique place, so rather than take a “one size fits all” approach, we’re working with local folks to make sure that our solution embraces the traditions and meets the affordable housing needs of the community.
