Zoning for Chicago Tiny Houses

There are at least 15 homeless tiny house communities throughout the US that are flourishing and creating affordable housing for homeless residents.

Chicago Tiny House Inc is dedicated not to changing this but duplicating this process for Chicago. We came to our city with a answer to the crisis of homelessness. We do not claim that this method would completely eliminate homelessness but want to offer a way to help with the issue.

The only thing in our way is zoning laws. We are asking Chicago and our state to sign this petition to start the process of zoning for tiny houses in Chicago to help aid in the issue of homelessness.

This is why we do what we do

This is why we do what we do

 

Chicago has plummeted to record lows and there are still people left sleeping outside. This photo was taken yesterday night in uptown – proof that people are still struggling to survive in the frigged weather here right next to us in Chicago.

People ask me why I am so adamant about bringing tiny houses to Chicago. This photo is reason alone. Please help Chicago Tiny House Inc to get zoning so we can start helping our brothers and sisters in our neighborhoods.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Tiny Houses Have Big Plans To Expand In Chicago

Tiny Houses Have Big Plans To Expand In Chicago

Check out this article on the CBS website. Brien Cron was interviewed by Mike Krauser for WBBM Newsradio. You can listen to the interview here: Tiny Houses Have Big Plans To Expand In Chicago.

The non-profit start-up Chicago Tiny House Inc. envisions replicating what’s been done elsewhere in the country says the organization’s founder and president Brien Cron.

“Tiny Houses actually came about because, at this time, there’s about 12 different communities across the United States who are actually using the communities to house the homeless,” says Cron.

Cron says at first people in the communities wanted nothing to do with them but they came around and they’ve been successful putting people in homes and offering services they need.

The model would take advantage of lots available for $1.00.

The tiny houses, according to Cron, would cost about $25,000 each and they’re raising money for a prototype.
