Tiny homes giving formerly homeless people the opportunity to become homeowners? You bet! Tiny homes are now being built in a Detroit neighborhood where formerly homeless folks and people with low incomes can rent—and have the opportunity to buy—their own homes. These very small green houses are part of a community within a neighborhood called Cass Community Tiny Homes that’s being developed by the Detroit-based nonprofit Cass Community Social Services (CCSS), which provides health, housing, food and jobs programs in areas of concentrated poverty in the city.
If phase one is successful, CCSS may consider adding an additional phase of homes for families in the future. In 10 years, Fowler hopes that Cass Community Tiny Homes will be a real neighborhood with a strong sense of community where people know each other and enjoy drinking coffee on their porches while the kids play games and ride bikes.
