OUR COMMUNITY OUTREACH MISSION

To partner with service organizations who share the goal of ending homelessness in our region

Carriage Houses has a mission that includes providing affordable housing solutions for people seeking quality living spaces on a small scale and importantly, for organizations whose purpose is to provide safe shelter to individuals experiencing homelessness. We are honored to have built tiny houses and other structures for two such organizations.

Our community builds have included shelters for Tacoma and Seattle tiny home encampments. We designed and built hygiene units for Seattle-metro locations. And we led teams for Vulcan Enterprises’ homeless housing event, which took place in Century Link Field. Check out the slideshow to the right!

Quixote Communities

Quixote Communities provides permanent supportive housing for people experiencing homelessness. They create and manage tiny home villages that foster community, encourage personal growth, and promote access to the care and services residents need.

Carriage Houses Northwest is currently building 35 tiny houses for a Quixote Community that will serve US military veterans who are experiencing homelessness. We are also building a 2200 sq ft community building that will include a commercial kitchen, bathrooms, laundry facilities and meeting rooms. Delivery is planned for late 2020.

Low Income Housing Institute

The Low Income Housing Institute develops, owns and operates housing for the benefit of low-income, homeless and formerly homeless people in Washington State; advocates for just housing policies at the local and national levels; and administers a range of supportive service programs to assist those we serve in maintaining stable housing and increasing their self-sufficiency.

Carriage Houses Northwest has built and delivered 20 tiny houses for LIHI, as well as 2 mobile hygiene units, which both included 3 full bathrooms and 1 laundry room. We are currently building 10 more tiny houses for an upcoming village!
