An Affordable Solution Catches On - A growing number of towns and cities have found a practical solution to homelessness through the construction of tiny-house.
It's certainly something that we would encourage other communities to take a look at.
For many years, it has been tough to find a way to house the homeless. More than 3.5 million people experience homelessness in the United States each year, according to the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty. Shortages of low-income housing continue to be a major challenge. For every 100 households of renters in the United States that earn "extremely low income" (30 percent of the median or less), there are only 30 affordable apartments available, according to a recent year report from the National Low Income Housing Coalition.
It's a very important step in terms of the kinds of services we should be providing to people that need assistance.
