Y2Y – Youth Providing Homeless Youth, Temporary Housing

NPR public radio, aired a story on Wednesday about a shelter for young adults only.  The story says that the spent $1,300,000 on renovations to the space which provides temporary housing for 22 youth for up to 30 days at a time.

While i applaud this wonderful work, i can’t help but wonder what could be done with $1,300,000 on a Homeless EcoVillage project.

For instance, a quick search on Zillow shows that there is a 5.25 acre parcel of land available in Easley, SC, for $129,900.  Our proposal, includes a drawing of an imaginary 5 acre parcel of land, and we have shown how we can easily construct a full 24 tiny homes in approximately 1 acre of space with plenty of room.  With an  expected cost of around $5,000 each, it would only cost  $120,000 to construct the 24 permanent tiny houses.

So you can see, that it would cost around $249,900 to construct 24 permanent tiny houses on over 5 acres of land in South Carolina.   The founder of HomelessEcoville is located in SC, so there is a real desire to see the first EcoVillage constructed there.

With the EcoVillage model of self sustainable living, we have the ability to help people get off the streets and become self sufficient with a modest investment – ‘a hand-up, not a hand-out’.

Would you consider helping HomelessEcoVille become a needed reality?
