Non-profit refuses to let veterans stay homeless, builds tiny home village to house them. Take a look inside!

The reasons for so many veterans living on the streets vary, and homelessness is a serious national issue that must be addressed urgently. The government should prioritize the housing of homeless veterans. On any given night, there are more than 40,000 homeless veterans in the United States, according to data from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development…

Veteran organizations across the country are aware of the issue and are doing their part by constructing tiny homes for veterans to live in while they rehabilitate. Clara White Mission, a non-profit in Jacksonville, Florida, is one of the organizations that pioneered in housing veterans and took this step. Veterans return from service with a variety of disorders, disabilities, and medical conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder and drug addiction, and find themselves without a job and, eventually, without a home.

Housing veterans is important.

They are forced to live on the streets, with little to no hope of improving their precarious situation. Organizations like the Clara White Mission have made it their mission to make a difference in the lives of homeless veterans by providing them with a place to call home until they can afford to move out and live in their own permanent residence. The non-profit created a neighborhood of tiny houses for homeless veterans to live in.

They strategically chose to locate this neighborhood near their headquarters in order to provide veterans with easier access from their organization. The Clara White Mission also aims to empower veterans by allowing them to assist in the construction of their own homes. The organization’s CEO, Ju’Coby Pittman, hopes to raise awareness about the plight of veterans across the country. She stated:

“They’ve given so much for our country, and now they need our help. These men and women have earned the right to live out the rest of their lives without worrying about where they will sleep at night. They are deserving of our respect. They are entitled to comfort, shelter, and warmth.” See for yourself in the video below.
