Work begins on village of tiny homes for homeless veterans

Posted: Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Work is beginning on a village of tiny homes for homeless veterans in Kansas City.

The Kansas City Star (http://j.mp/2cwELB1 ) reports that the Veterans Community Project, a nonprofit formed by local veterans just nine months ago, hopes to have its first order of 10 tiny houses standing next month.

Plans call for the houses to be built off-site and hauled to Kansas City.

Lumber for the project arrived over the weekend. It was provided by another nonprofit, 2x4s For Hope, which delivered the goods out of Quincy, Illinois. The group hosts events in which people can sponsor a board, put their names to it and write well-wishes for survivors of disasters. In recent months, the nonprofit's founders have joined a nationwide movement to create tiny-house communities for needy veterans.
