Although many efforts to reduce the number of homeless veterans living in the US have been made across the country, the problem still remains. The number of homeless veterans is alarmingly high, but thankfully, there are inspired people out there who are constantly looking for new solutions to solve this critical issue, and help veterans regain their dignity and live a happy, independent life.
A group of Kansas City veterans are fighting against homelessness among fellow veterans with tiny houses. The Veterans Community Project plans to place 45 to 50 tiny houses on several acres in south Kansas City.
The houses are equipped with all amenities that any person needs to lead a normal, decent life, but because of their size, they are a lot cheaper to build compared to regular homes. The homes come fully furnished and stocked with food, so that the veterans can focus on reintegrating into society without having to go through the hassle of waiting for food stamps, gas, electricity, or voucher processes.
What do you think? Can tiny homes solve homelessness in the U.S.? Share this post with your friends and family and ask them what they think.
