The Numbers: LIHI Tiny Houses & Shelters Save Lives!

In 2022, tiny houses again proved to be a highly effective interim solution to homelessness, providing life-changing and life-saving shelter to thousands of people while our expert case managers helped them to find permanent housing. Here are the figures.

Numbers At A Glance:

2,080 people lived in LIHI tiny houses and shelters in 2022, including:

- 1,689 people, including 52 children, lived in tiny houses or micro-shelters. LIHI operates 18 Tiny House Villages in King, Pierce, Thurston and Whatcom counties.

- 391 people lived in LIHI's enhanced shelters including Aspen Court, a converted Comfort Inn motel in Tacoma, and Lakefront Community House in Seattle.

Given the severity of Washington's homeless crisis, LIHI sheltered 2,080 people who would otherwise be living outdoors or in their vehicles.

A total of 1,200 people lived in tiny houses in Seattle/King County in 2022.

So far in 2023, 53% of people who exited a tiny house in Seattle obtained permanent housing. This is a high success rate compared to traditional shelters as on-site case managers are able to help with housing and employment applications, income support and supportive services.
