Celebrates 106 th Tiny Home, Tallahassee , Florida
Written by Janet Thome
The Dwellings. a tiny home community in Tallahassee, Florida completes another phase of tiny homes and had a ribbon ceremony with their developers and celebrated their 106th tiny home today. The homes are beautiful, with a warm cottage style, furnished and the community is set up for the residents to engage with each other and encourage relationships through gardening together and long chats by the fire pit. There is a community garden, meeting hall, laundromat, wood shop and market where the people who live in the community can volunteer.
The homes are for rent and everyone is required to contribute to the community.
The Dwellings is the third entity under CESC, Inc. and aids in the overarching mission of making homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring. The Dwellings is a sustainable housing solution for individuals who are financially, socially, or institutionally disadvantaged. Simply put, they assist those who do not traditionally meet the requirements for most housing options in Tallahassee.
Option For Veterans
For example, a veteran on a fixed income without the funds to put down first and last month’s rent, may be eligible to live at The Dwellings and participate in their program.
What Does It Mean To Have A Program With A Housing Community?
All of the residents agree to participate in their programming when they agree to live in the community. They understand that eradicating homelessness is not as simple as giving someone a roof over their head, and they look to ensure that the residents continue to grow and maintain success. They are able to do this with on-site case management, access to communal services such as laundry facilities, gathering spaces, a dining hall and more. They look to provide over 130 housing units with a low carbon footprint, high-tech benefits, and access to resources all in one location.
