Contribute to a tiny shelter build.

We Had a Vision 20 • 20 • 20

In 2017, we organized volunteers to join us as we partnered with Seattle’s Low Income Housing Institute and built tiny houses for the new encampments in the Georgetown neighborhood.

A Community Model for Developing Transitional Homeless Housing

GOAL: develop portable cottage housing units on donated/ designated land to tangibly address local homeless housing needs.

This was a not-for-profit outreach opportunity for individuals, organizations, churches, or youth groups to serve and impact the homeless in our community. 35+ volunteers raised funds and assembled cottage-housing units provided by us, Carriage Houses Northwest. This simple fundraising model successfully raised the cost of materials for four cottage housing units and we built them in one Saturday!
