Grand Opening for the Hammer Tiny House Community & Garden is Finally Here!

Tiny House Community Development’s intent is to create safe, permanent affordable housing for those experiencing homelessness and put people into permanent housing.
The Sustainability Resource Center’s mission is to engage people through education and action to create a more sustainable community – environmentally, socially, and economically.

“I believe tiny houses can be a part of the solution to help to end homelessness and housing poverty,” said Brett Byerly, Executive Director of Greensboro Housing Coalition. “Imagine someone living off minimum wage income or disability who had to choose between eating and rent. They can have the option of living in a small, energy efficient home with low housing cost and low utilities where they can afford to eat and live indoors.”
