Today five people who are currently experiencing homelessness in Nashville, Tennessee will move into tiny shelters built upon trailers. About the size of a garden shed, each structure has a fold down bed, a microwave, a tiny gas stove, and a tiny heater/AC in the window. This project was spearheaded by Rev. Jeff Obafemi Carr who stayed in a model home for sixty days while fund-raising to make a larger village a reality. At the time of this writing, Jeff's gofundme.com page has raised over $55,000 with 650 individual contributions for this effort. Similar projects are popping up all across the country organized by a diffuse group of individuals concerned about affordable and environmentally sustainable housing. More details can be found by visiting Jeff's gofundme page and the links available there. http://www.gofundme.com/HomelessVillage
