In 2016, there were 39,471 homeless veterans. That’s 39,471 too many. Fortunately, yet another use for the mega-popular tiny house has come to light.
Veterans Community Project is a non-for-profit in Kansas City, Missouri, that’s building tiny houses for homeless veterans. The organization was started by two local veterans who wanted to give back to their brethren.
They’ve built about 50 houses on four acres and plan to cover living expenses.
"It's going to be a home for them until they get squared away, and then they get their own place. That's dignity in itself. That key is like Superman's cape. It's like Captain America's shield," said organization founder Chris Stout.
