Tiny House Villages in America

I want to try to keep a list of tiny house villages that exist in the United State. If you know of any that exist but aren't on this list please let me know: sage@houselessmovement.org

Here are Facebook Pages for the camps I know exist:


Camp Second Chance - in Seattle

Camp Second Chance is a clean and sober homeless encampment providing emergency shelter for up to 50 people in tiny homes The current population is about 53. The camp is managed by its residents in partnership with the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI). Camp Second Chance is one of ten encampments authorized and funded by the City of Seattle's Human Services Department as part of the City's emergency response to homelessness.

Nickelsville - Seattle Washington

Nickelsville came about in response to the sweeps of encampments ordered by former Mayor Greg Nickels.    After six months of  organizing Nickelsville set up on an unused piece of city owned land on West Marginal Way on September 22, 2008. Volunteers and donors converged on the site and began setting up tents and building structures.    That afternoon the encampment was posted with notifications that it would be swept.  Five days later several dozen homeless people and their allies were arrested.  Nickelsville immediately set up on an adjacent state owned parking lot.  Governor Gregoire allowed Nickelsville to remain long enough to find a new location.

Tiny homes for homeless vets are coming to Milwaukee Wisconsin's northwest side

This isn't running as of today (12/2/2021). I can't find any website or social media for them.

A plan to develop "tiny homes" for homeless veterans on Milwaukee's northwest side is proceeding after obtaining an important part of its financing package. The developer, Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin Inc., has received approval for a $700,000 loan from the Milwaukee Economic Development Corp., a nonprofit business lender affiliated with the City of Milwaukee. That loan will provide bridge financing as Veterans Outreach continues its fundraising efforts to develop up to 48 homes on 7 acres at 6767 N. 60th St., according to MEDC. The Common Council and Mayor Tom Barrett in 2019 approved selling the city-owned site for $35,000. With the MEDC loan, Veterans Outreach plans to complete its land purchase the week of July 5 and break ground on the project soon after, said Brad Behling, the nonprofit group's executive director. The rest of the $2.2 million project's financing is coming from grants and donations. The project's first phase will include 24 single-family small houses, and a 10,000-square-foot community center with a communal kitchen, showers and offices to host services for the residents. Veterans Outreach hopes to have residents moving in by spring, Behling told the Journal Sentinel. Each house would have 240 square feet. The goal is to help residents become stable and find jobs and new housing within two years. The tiny-homes model is designed to give each resident a sense of having their own home. The proposal is based on the group's Racine development: the James A. Peterson Veterans Village. That project, which opened in 2017, features 15 tiny homes and a community center with showers, laundry facilities, kitchen, food pantry and recreation areas.

Oakland, CA, "Tiny homes' help homeless find some temporary stability in big cities

I can't seem to find any website or social media for Lakeview Village. If you know of one please let me know. sage@houselessmovement.org

Called Lakeview Village, the rows of white tiny homes on wooden pallets, are on Oakland-owned land near the popular Lake Merritt. It's located where a 24-story high-rise containing 361 apartments (about one-third slated for affordable housing) is scheduled for construction. However, the project has stalled due to a lack of local developer funding, Bas said.


About | HomesNow!  in Bellingham and Whatcom County in Washington state.

In the summer of 2017, HomesNOW! worked with Lummi Stepping Stones on Lummi Nation to build three tiny homes. From January to April 2019, HomesNOW! managed Winter Haven, Bellingham’s first temporary tent community located behind Bellingham City Hall.   During that time, we provided 35 formerly homeless people with a safe place to live. From April to August 2019, HomesNOW! managed Safe Haven, our second temporary tent community located in the What-Comm 911 Call Center parking lot in the Sunnyland neighborhood.   During that time, HomesNOW provided 32 homeless people with a safe place to live. Nine people found permanent housing. In September 2019, HomesNOW! opened Unity Village, Bellingham’s first tiny home village for homeless individuals. Unity Village has 20 tiny homes and has provided transitional housing for 20 to 24 people at a time. 40% of the residents who have come through Unity Village have found permanent housing.   Winter Haven, Safe Haven and Unity Village have been successful at helping people find stability and connecting them to needed services. In February 2019, during extreme winter weather conditions, HomesNOW! coordinated with a local church and volunteers from the community to manage an emergency shelter providing for up to 40 people.
