Tiny Homes Communities - A Dignified Alternative
Simply put, there's not enough shelter space or permanent affordable housing for Denver citizens without homes. A number of underserved groups are particularly unable to access shelter: couples, trans-gendered people, fathers with children, those with disabilities or service animals, people who work odd hours, etc. Combine this with the criminalization of surviving outdoors, and thousands of people are in need of a warm and welcoming place to go. Tiny home villages offer a place of dignity, community, and self-determination.
ASAP has launched a new organization: Colorado Village Collaborative that's leading the movement for tiny home communities in the Metro Area. The first village -- endorsed by RiNo, Cole, and Curtis Park Neighborhood Associations -- is located at the corner of 38th and Walnut on property provided by the Urban Land Conservancy. The site will include 11 sleeping units, a communal space and food prep area, showers and restrooms, and services like a mobile laundry unit and resource navigation provided by Bayaud Enterprises.
