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

In response to the homeless crisis in Kitsap County, Homes for All, a countywide leadership coalition of local agencies, businesses, 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.

The foundation of Homes for All is that every person should have the opportunity to live in a safe, decent and affordable home. 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.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend these community meetings. There will be opportunities to ask questions and learn about available resources.
