Building a Tiny House for Youth Tiny Home Village


Building a Tiny House for Youth Tiny Home Village

$3,680 to $15,000 goal

FROM 38 DONORS SINCE Feb 3, 2020 ENDS ON Jun 1, 2020

The San Francisco Bay Area is facing a housing crisis. This crisis is having a huge affect on youth and families. Visitacion Valley Middle School is partnering with Youth Spirit Artworks (YSA) to do something about it. Youth at YSA initiated a community organizing campaign to build a Youth Tiny House Village in the San Francisco East Bay. The Tiny House Village project was initiated by young people in YSA’s programs in response to the crisis of affordable and accessible housing. There are 1,700 homeless young people in Alameda County, and 36 youth designated beds in shelters and affordable housing. This will be a community-led Village that is designed by the young people it will benefit. We will be building one of the tiny homes for the village here at Visitacion Valley Middle school. It will be a community project to build the house, involving students, teachers, staff, families, and community members. We are raising money for tools, materials, and supplies. We are hoping that this project will be an opportunity for our school to connect to the community and make a difference while learning real world skills. You can learn more about the Tiny House Village at http://youthspiritartworks.org/programs/tiny-house-village/
