Mission Statement

A forward-thinking coalition of volunteers dedicated to building Tiny House communities to eliminate homelessness.

Description

Eliminating Homelessness One Tiny House at a Time

Chicago Tiny House’s mission is to create tiny house communities throughout Chicago that will provide homeless Chicagoans with safe and cost-effective housing and integrated supportive services.

We have been helping the homeless of Chicago for over 15 years, specifically working with the Uptown Tent City over the last two years. Tent City housed an estimated population of 70 people who all lived under the bridges of Wilson and Lawrence Avenues at Lake Shore Drive. Recently the city had to close these bridges for repair, displacing all the homeless who resided there. Our cause does not stop with the elimination of this community.

We are completely volunteer-powered. By bringing together concerned citizens, advocates, lawmakers, and donors, we can bring shelter, food, and supportive services to our most vulnerable neighbors, greatly reducing homelessness, while helping them move forward with dignity.
