A SMALL HOUSE, A BIG DIFFERENCE
A strategy to combat homelessness.
In Wisconsin, Texas or New York, creating tiny home communities to combat homelessness has proven to be a successful strategy.
Now the time has come for another American city to embrace this idea. Portland, Oregon, hopes to have the first micro-community in place by February of next year. It will consist of 25 192 square-foot housing units with laundry, administrative services and others.
These homes, which would cost $250 to $350 per month to rent, would allow their residents to save from $5,000 to $15,000 a year to be able to afford them.
