Social Justice 4 All is working on a project in collaboration with North Grand Neighborhood Services (NGNS) and the Rockwood School District which will result in 3 tiny attached houses. NGNS is a 501(c)(3) that has been working with the North Grand community since 2005. They are organized for charitable purposes related to community development activities for the support and benefit of the physical, economic, and social environment of the North Grand neighborhood. They promote the dignity of low-income persons and the community in which they share by developing affordable housing, employment and training for youth, and other community initiatives. For more information on NGNS you may go to their website by clicking here.
Summit and Eureka high schools, in the Rockwood School District, have completed their part in building 2 of the 3 houses. The 3rd house will be built on site sometime after the summer of 2018. The houses have been transported from the schools to the site at 3633 N. Market thanks to HWP Rigging. Work is still needed to complete the interiors of the 2 houses built by the schools and to construct the 3rd house.
The houses will become homes for persons who are experiencing homelessness or for others in need. The tiny houses will be the property of NGNS and the residents will have access to the individualized services that they need to help them thrive.
Construction began on 10/16/2017. You can help this project by donating materials, appliances, or connecting us to those who may help. You can donate money to our project by clicking here.
