Local non-profit working on latest project to help end homelessness
So far more than $55,000 has been raised to go towards the community building.
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -Tiny Hope Village is a local nonprofit working to end homelessness across the Brazos Valley.
Last year the non-profit purchased seven acres of land in Hearne that 24 homes will be built on. The first step in this project is creating a community building. The $110,000 building will hold things like bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry.
So far the nonprofit has raised more than $55,000 and has several organizations who have pledged $25,000 as matching funds.
Tiny Hope Village is looking for support from the community to donate what they can to their cause.
“Learning to break down the stereotypes and learning to love one another as brothers and sisters,”said Dan Kiniry Tiny Hope Village Executive Director. “We’ve learned that we all need the same things, we need homes and we need people around us that love and care about us.”
The nonprofit is hoping to have all funds raised by Christmas and for construction on the community building to be done by February.
