he REACH Tiny Home Committee
For the past number of months, I have had the pleasure to chair
REACH’s Tiny Home Committee
. My career as a mental health professional has led me to see the enormous need of the underserved in our community. REACH’s three prong approach of Shelter, Tiny Home Village and Advocacy seemed to be a way for me to continue to engage in service to the underserved.
Our Tiny Home Committee has some busy months ahead. We have received the initial draft architectural drawings of our first Tiny Home as well as the site plans for the Village. We are working with the architects to finalize these plans. Once the architectural plans are finalized, we will be able to submit a request to City Real Estate for the purchase of land on St. Paul street. To help us with the development of our Tiny Home Village we continue to explore fund raising opportunities. We have been successful in obtaining some funding through Grants. In the Fall we plan to hold community meetings to inform the St. Paul Street neighborhood about our Tiny Home Village. We have been identifying and engaging key community leaders in the planning for these neighborhood meetings.
As you can see the Tiny Home Village is moving forward and we thank you for your support of this initiative. Exciting times are ahead of us. Susan Maxwell, Chair
