Tiny homes in Terrace Heights to shelter homeless families
TERRACE HEIGHTS, Wash. - Volunteers are putting the finishing touches on some tiny homes for families in need of temporary shelter.
People came out to Terrace Heights Assembly of God church Friday to paint two 10x20 foot homes onsite.
Transform Yakima Together is working on this project with the church and Executive Director Andy Ferguson said the church gets to decide who they want to help.
Pastor Don Foster told Action News back in December they chose to help women with children.
Ferguson said these tiny homes will include mini kitchens, showers, toilets with full plumbing and electrical.
The homes will serve as transitional housing for the homeless and people will stay less than two years.
Project leaders say the tiny houses are expected to be move-in ready by the first week of August.
