Call to action

Dear Tiny House community                                                                                                                                 Friday, September 28, 2018 This call to action is being submitted by Chicago Tiny House Inc. to all the fine residents of Chicago who are in favor of building community based tiny houses for our veterans and homeless residents of Chicago. Our Organization has taken on the challenge of helping our city support our fellow residents by providing community based housing at low to no cost to our clients. We cannot continue our plan of aiding our fellow homeless, without proper zoning changes. We feel our voices have gone unheard and have been put through wave after wave of political red tape. We have submitted two different proposals which outline a basic plan of building tiny house communities throughout Chicago and have hundreds of people backing our project as well as two prominent alderman backing our project. Our organization, Chicago Tiny House Inc., turned in the first proposal to build to our city department of planning back in April of 2018, to which was asked to be reworked and resubmitted. We then reworked the proposal and included the suggested changes and resubmitted on 07/10/2018. The second turn in of our proposal was accepted and tabled at Rahm Emmanuel’s request citing the city needed more information on tiny houses. Since then, we have no idea on what is going on nor do we know what direction our proposal is headed. We kindly ask that our proposal be approved so that we can continue helping our fellow residents to the best ability that we can. We have tried all legal endeavors and are now at the point where all we need is city approval and are not getting any communication from the city. Therefore, we encourage all our supporters to stand in mass, along with Chicago Tiny House Inc. to support our project. We want to show this city that we are serious and need to implement tiny houses to help put a dent in homelessness.   We are asking all our supporters to show interest by rallying on the sidewalks of city hall alongside with Chicago Tiny House Inc.

Where: City Hall Sidewalks

Time 10:00am

Meeting Address :

Chicago Tiny House T-Shirt Sale!

Chicago Tiny House T-Shirt Sale!

We’re having a t-shirt sale this month!

All proceeds help fund the building of our tiny house prototype! Building an example of a tiny house is our first priority. We need this in order for people to get a better understanding of what they look like and how the interior layout is designed. This will help people know what they are giving towards. All of our tiny houses will be handicap accessible which is incredibly important to us.

Our first project will be geared towards housing vets in tiny houses. We have a number of social service organizations who have agreed to help us with support services and financial backing.

Statistics on Homeless Veterans

In April 2017, the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless released an analysis of how many Chicagoans are homeless, per the 2015 census: 82,212.

Chicago reported the largest increase in veteran homelessness between 2009 and 2016, a 20.2% increase, up by 101 people. The city reported that 10.2% of those who were homeless in 2016 were veterans, up from 7% in 2015 and 9% in 2014.

This information came from the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless in their FAQ section. The demographics are astonishing. There has been a decrease overall in homelessness in Chicago, but the number of homeless veterans is rising steadily. Take some time and visit the CCH website. It keeps up with the latest statistics and provides a number of resources.

Every t-shirt sold goes toward helping a vet find a home.

Get $5 off a t-shirt this month only.
