BELOVED COMMUNITY VILLAGE OPENS AND RESIDENTS MOVE IN!
For: Immediate Release
What: Press Conference
Date: July 29 2017
Where: Beloved Community Village
3733 Walnut St.
The Beloved Community Village residents have begun moving in!
Press is invited to a press conference at the village on Saturday July 29th at 3pm.
The Colorado Village Collaborative and its many community partners have built Denver Colorado's first tiny home village for homeless people. Thanks to the over 400 volunteers, to Whiting-Turner, to Mennonite Disaster Services, and village residents together we built this village! This was truly a community effort - it takes a village to build a village!
Residents moved in on July 21, 2017 with joy and relief from the short wait to move in to their tiny homes. This has been a long process through changing city codes, fundraising, building the village, and building community...and this is not the end! But we are so excited to finally be moved into these homes!
This village is born in the context of massive increase in housing costs and people forced to live on the streets being criminalized for simply surviving. Tiny Home villages are an inexpensive, quick, community based, environmentally friendly model which can immediately begin to provide homes and community for those without. Beloved Community Village is not run by outsiders but rather is a self-governed community.
In the near future the CVC will partner with St Andrews Episcopal church to build its next tiny home village. The next build of tiny homes will house homeless women.
The Beloved Community Village will be hosting its volunteers, partners, neighborhood, and friends for a big thank you event later in August.
