|About Small House Inc.
Small House Inc. was founded in 2021 and is a nonprofit on a mission to make a space where YAs can create the kind of lives they want to have as they transition out of being homeless and into independence. Centering their unique needs is part of how we do that.
Young adults deserve the best possible chance to create a good life for themselves and we know that they can actually do it. They just need a little bit of help and a lot of support in the process. Locally, when we get 3 YAs housed through a rapid rehousing program, 19 more are still going without a placement and continue to wait. And research has shown that the longer an individual is in homlessness, the risk of them remaining in the cycle increases.
What we are working on and exploring right now is an innovative and unique way to combine housing, life coaching, and community partnership.

Your interest, participation, and support of this work will be critical as we work towards addressing the needs of our local youth and young adults who need our help.
