Tiny Homes Community in North Hollywood To Help Homeless Crisis

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission, a faith-based non-profit organization, is working to end the ever worsening homeless crisis in Los Angeles.

They operate various shelters across the city and a job center. And on Monday, Hope of the Valley opened L.A.’s first ever tiny homes community in North Hollywood.

“One of the most powerful things is when we see people come into this shelter, people that had been living out in the elements, in a tent, under a freeway,” said Ken Craft, president and CEO of Hope Valley Rescue Mission.

These houses are life-changing.

To live here, residents had to be homeless, 18 years and older, and living within a 3-mile radius.

“When they walk into a place and they see it’s theirs, there’s four windows, there’s fresh air coming in, they can actually stay warm at night, they can stay cool when it’s hot, ” said Craft.
