Thank you to Governor Inslee, Council Member Andrew Lewis, Barb Oliver of Sound Foundations NW, and Deacon Lunden Knight of the Church By the Side of the Road in Tukwila for speaking out in support of tiny houses!
“Once you give people a tiny bit of privacy if you can get them into a tiny home where they have a door to shut, they stay and then they go into supportive housing," Inslee said.
"[KCRHA] needs to scrap the (Five Year) plan that they have and rethink what they’re doing, and probably re-staff,” said Barb Oliver, the director of Sound Foundations NW, a nonprofit that builds tiny homes in Seattle. “I don’t know how else to say it - this program works, so why aren’t we doing it? We can ramp up to get the number of homes to get people off the streets."
“It may not be the best solution, it may not be the perfect solution, but is it a positive solution in getting people off the street? Heck yes," said Deacon Lunden Knight of the Church by the Side of the Road in Tukwila
These kinds of efforts are what will keep tiny houses growing and will keep providing people with comfortable, safe shelter for years to come. LIHI appreciates your support!
