Kansas City is at the forefront of the fast growing “tiny house” trend that is sweeping the nation by building a unique tiny house village for homeless veterans. With the help of Honeywell, the Veterans Community Project added its first American with Disabilities Act- compliant tiny home for homeless veterans with disabilities.
A crew of Honeywell volunteers built the home over a two-day build schedule. Many of the volunteers were part of Honeywell’s Veterans Employee Group, which celebrates employees’ service to our military as well as help recruit new employees transitioning out of the military.
The goal of the Veterans Community Project is to serve as many as 200 homeless veterans in Kansas City through a holistic community approach, which includes providing temporary housing and job assistance.
As many as 400 Honeywell employees are veterans, and that's why these former U.S. military service men and women have a heart for helping homeless veterans right here in Kansas City.
