Founders of the Veterans Community Project hope to help their fellow servicemen by building a village of 52 tiny homes for homeless veterans in Kansas City. The 240-square-foot homes will include a bed, kitchen and bathroom. The project will also match clients with mentors who provide social support as they transition to their new homes. The goal of the program is to cater to veterans' specific needs and to serve clients who do not qualify for other programs. Construction on 10 of the homes began in October. The project hopes to have veterans in homes starting in March. For more information, visit the Veterans Community Project website.
