ST. LOUIS, MO: The tiny homes project is coming to St. Louis, MO. St. Louis city leaders have approved the sale of 32 lots in north St. Louis after more than a year of discussing it. This project is to help homeless veterans in the area get back on their feet. Therefore, it’s time for veterans to get their due and respect as they bravely served our country.

Ground Breaking Project

The project of building tiny homes for area veterans breaks ground on October 16th on the corner of Grand and Aldine in north St. Louis near the VA hospital. In addition, the property will also feature an on-site clinic and community center. Though, a community like this exists like in Kansas City. That’s where the organization Veterans Community Outreach resides which is spearheading the project in St. Louis. However, the St. Louis property is one that will have 32 plots of land. Moreover, one belongs to the city that just voted to approve the sale of that parcel.

Tiny Homes For Homeless Veterans

“As I have often said, there’s no way for any of us or anyone to get their life back together from a sidewalk. You simply have to have a place, a permanent place where you know you’re going to be every night,” said St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson.

Moreover, this all started as a meeting among veterans.

“We all kind of looked across the landscape and made a decision that there is a real lack of services for the homeless veteran population. We said if we could do whatever we wanted and the rules don’t apply to us what would be the best?” explained Veterans Community Project CEO Bryan Meyer.

Therefore, Meyer and other former military members came up with the decision of turning vacant lots into rehabilitation centers for other veterans. Right now, the lot has trash and is overgrown with weeds. But in a short amount of time, an organization will put up 50 tiny homes for veterans in north St. Louis.

Kansas City has a Veterans Community Project already built.

“Once we got it up and going we started having such a high success rate that other people took notice and we started getting calls from all across the country to expand,” added Meyer.

On the corner of Aldine and North Grand in north city another could be going up by the end of next year.
