Tiny Homes Update

Posted on

This last winter during our When We Show Up campaign, Woodland raised money to build a prototype of a tiny home for the long-term homeless.

A movement to build tiny homes for those experiencing homeless is growing across the nation. Tiny home settlements are cost-effective, eco-friendly and ideal for providing both privacy and community. But this is a new approach in the Twin Cities, so it’s important for communities to see what this could look like in actuality. The purpose of this display home is to help other churches and government officials catch a vision for how tiny homes can address the problem of homelessness in the Twin Cities.

Janice Rohling, Executive Pastor at Woodland says, “It’s been great to be a part of getting this prototype off the ground. We’re excited about the potential for tiny houses in the Twin Cities, and will continue to seek God’s direction for Woodland’s participation in this endeavor.”

Construction of this tiny home is taking place in the north parking lot. We hope to have an open house to launch the prototype by early fall.

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
