Tiny Home for Homeless Youth

All year long, as part of his Keystone Project, Senior Didi M. has been constructing a tiny home unit for homeless youth, guided by the work of Youth Spirit Artworks’ Tiny Home Initiative.

"With homes scattered at over two-dozen congregations around the Bay, taking up a cumulative 1,040 square feet of prime Bay Area real estate, Youth Spirit Artworks’ affordable housing initiative has already yielded 16 tiny home units, with 10 more underway. YSA’s “100 homes for 100 homeless youth” community campaign, launched in 2017, is working towards getting a bed under, a roof over, and a community around the Bay Area’s youth homeless population."
