Denver Church Fights To Build Tiny House Village For People Experiencing Homelessness

The St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Denver has been in a several-year battle with the city planning department, working to get the tiny home development approved.

As more and more cities struggle to find proper shelter for their homeless, Denver has taken a very important step toward assisting its own population.

Thanks in part to the efforts of this local church, some people experiencing homelessness will now have the dignity that they deserve. St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church of Colorado is currently looking to create a second tiny house village adjacent to their downtown location.

The Beloved Community was the first tiny house village that was built and it came with 11 residences. If the second village is constructed, this one will come with 8 places to live. According to updates from the church,they have been having rallies, encouraging the city to change its zoning laws so that they can create the village as quickly as possible.

With any luck, this process will be completed as quickly as possible. These are the initiatives that make us truly happy.

We believe that every human being has the inherent right to a place to live. With any luck, the zoning laws will be changed and more of these villages can be created. In a fair and just world, they would be commonplace.

It does not take much time or money to put up a tiny house, which makes them a great choice when it comes to finding homes for those who are less fortunate. They do not have the time to wait for more complicated solutions. Time is always going to be of the essence when you are talking about situations like these.

Let’s all do our part to raise awareness about this issue. It is time that we all stepped up to contribute. After all, homelessness is not a problem that discriminates. All it takes are a few wrong turns in life to end up in the same predicament as these hard-working Americans.

With any luck, the city of Denver will get more homes like these in the future. Other cities need to be taking note of this and following suit!
