Learn how tiny cabins can serve as a response to county's homeless crisis

Across the country, villages of tiny cabins are being constructed as part of strategies to develop transitional, emergency or temporary shelter for people experiencing homelessness. 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:

Wednesday, Aug. 15, Givens Community Center, 1026 Sidney Ave., Port Orchard

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

Tuesday, Sept. 11, Norm Dicks Center, 345 6th Street, Bremerton

Thursday, Sept. 27, Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church, 11042 Sunrise Drive NE, Bainbridge Island
