Tiny Homes Community




There are too many Veterans limited by their zip code and unable to create a better life for themselves for lack of a living wage jobs and affordable housing. That’s why Veterans Place has undertaken the Tiny Homes Project to provide affordable housing that will support healthy, sustainable living.

Veterans Place is partnering with BOB Project Inc. to build a tiny house community that will serve as permanent, supportive housing for homeless Veterans. The modular "living" homes can expand as Veteran’s needs change and the neighborhood will include a holistic center, green spaces and community gardening that will contribute to the overall vitality of the neighborhood by serving as a resource for both the tiny homes community and surrounding community at large. The tiny homes will incorporate energy efficiency upgrades, solar and other green building efforts to make the homes healthy and affordable.

The model Tiny Homes’ site will consist of fifteen tiny homes, a holistic center, a shared community garden, a gathering pavilion, storm water retention pond, and walking trail on a 3.7-acre site in the Penn Hills neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. It In the 5,000 square-foot community center, veterans will be able to take classes, develop a skill set in new trades, cook and share meals, and participate in events sponsored by the greater community. The Tiny Homes will be built, sometimes with the help of the occupying veteran.
