Non-profit working to fight homelessness in BCS

By  | 

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - A new non-profit is working to combat homelessness in the Bryan and College Station community.

Tiny Hope Village aims to be a community of support for people who have been experiencing homelessness. The village will be a permanent housing solution, not transitional housing. It will be a place for people both with and without income.

More than a group of houses that are affordable, the group will run as an intentional community. Many of the residents who will live there need more support than simply a house, and organizers say they will offer that support as a community, with each resident working to serve the others who live there.

Right now, they are looking for land. Founder Dan Kiniry said they are hoping to get some land donated. They're hoping to stay within 20 minutes of the city.

The group has a launch party and fundraiser on September 7. Square One in downtown Bryan is hosting the event from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will be food, drinks and a silent auction.
