Seattle’s first tiny house village for homeless women opens
SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle’s first tiny house village for women experiencing homelessness will open Wednesday.
News outlets report the village of 15 homes, community space, restroom and showers for up to 20 women is located near the city’s Ballard neighborhood.
The village was built by a crew of mostly women volunteers. It will be run by the Low Income Housing Institute which operates other tiny home villages throughout the city.
Officials say alcohol and drugs will be allowed in the homes.
Institute officials say the site will be staffed 24/7 while a case manager will help women find long-term housing, employment and health care.
