First Detroit Tiny House will Allow Homeless Rent

By in Love Empowers

Putting love into action empowers those around us. A non-profit organization out of Detroit, Michigan is loving their homeless community by building tiny homes. Cass Community Social Services has committed to building 25 single-family homes for residents that will have the opportunity to rent-to-own the homes. They will rent the home and land over a 7 year period, which will end with ownership over the property. Half of the homes will be rented to the homeless population, while the other half will be made up of college students or senior citizens. Since Cass built the first house in September, they expect to have six more built by the end of the year. They have already raised $800,000 out of their $1.5 million goal for the project based solely off of private donations. The community of homeowners will make all future decisions on who will move into their neighborhood, as such creating a loving, supportive atmosphere in which to live. Cass Community Social Services is giving their homeless community the opportunity of a lifetime… because Love Empowers.
