Elaine, that is a great list.
a huge number of links on it. nice to see so many more "decent" options opening up.

I am glad to see, all these lists/links for Tiny Homes for Homelesss.

What I would really like to see happen, is to someone offer these folks lings to "regular" Tiny Home Communities, so the "homeless" can somehow stop being "identified" as homeless, and more "identified" as "folks living in Tiny Homes".

Thanks Anonymous, I agree.

A group of Volunteers in Madison, Wi convinced the City council to build tiny homes for the Homeless. They formed a group called Occupy Madison. Zoning is the biggest barrier. They are looking to expand the current facility.
