TINY HOUSES FOR HUMANITY
Tiny Houses For Humanity Campaign is headed by River King, Sonoma County homeless advocate. Overwhelmed by how much money is being spent on shelters, day centers, and emergency room visits that are keeping individuals and families alive but unwell, she has partnered with Jay Shafer, pioneer of the Tiny House Movement. He has recently announced his willingness to use his international reputation as architectural genius and Tiny House creator on behalf of the Bay Area's local housing crisis. Jay will be creating 5 new designs that will accommodate both small families and individuals. Tiny Houses for Humanity will be working with teams of volunteers from Habitat For Humanity, Sonoma State's J.U.M.P., and others to help with building these Tiny Houses in order to wrap local displaced residents in the love and support that we are all deserving of.
