Many tiny house communities provide a safe and secure home for the homeless. Tiny house communities often provide the homeless with more than just a home; they help the homeless get back on their feet again by supporting them on their housing and employment applications, helping them enroll their kids in school, and signing them up for health care so they’re able to move on to their lives. Here are a few communities that are making a difference in the lives of the homeless.
