Tiny homes for the homeless: Group to reveal plans

PORT ORCHARD — Kitsap County’s Homes for All coalition has scheduled meetings for community members to learn more about how tiny cabin villages can fit into larger housing and homelessness plans.

The meetings will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the following locations and dates:

Port Orchard

Wednesday, Aug. 15: Givens Community Center, 1026 Sidney Ave.

Kingston

Wednesday, Aug. 29: Village Green Community Center, 26159 Dulay Road NE

Bremerton

Tuesday, Sept. 11: Norm Dicks Center, 345 6th St.

In response to the homelessness crisis in Kitsap County, Homes for All, a countywide leadership coalition of local agencies, businesses, and faith-based and community organizations, was created to develop strategies for an efficient and effective homeless response system.

Representatives from some of the Homes for All partners, including Kitsap Community Resources, Kitsap Rescue Mission and Kitsap County’s Department of Community Development and Human Services Homeless Program, will share information on how tiny cabin villages address goals of the 2018 Kitsap Homeless Crisis Response and Housing Plan.

A pilot project underway in South Kitsap aims to provide 14 tiny cabins for up to 20 people. Tiny cabin villages, also known as “livability community projects,” can serve as transitional, emergency or temporary housing and offer case management and care services for residents. The villages are built through community partnerships and provide interim shelter until permanent housing is obtained.
