A project of Singleton Community Services – EIN 465600200 buildushope.org
The Build us H.O.P.E. housing model will provide an innovative mix of affordable housing options for residents with features such as:
Low cost, with options for ownership of the home, in Community gardens, farming (in some locations)
Centralization for ease of communications, referrals and access to services such as job
Sustainability – solar, aquaponics, and leave a “green” footprint.
Once clients have a home to live in they will be provided workshops and training centers, allowing collaborative programs within the community. These programs are designed to create a sense of “Community” and reduce the epidemic of loneliness and isolation these individuals often feel.
The communities are being planned for locations throughout Arizona and will be built with the holistic approach to creating the right environment for integrated neighborhoods. Singleton Community Services is utilizing the “micro-home” standard (typically 240 – 480 square foot) in the communities. This model could reduce the per-unit cost by more than 50%, thereby expanding the resources to house more individuals.
The communities will allow the residents to take the smaller steps to re-acclimate to a more modern and busy life. For some, the life in this community will become their permanent home.
Build us H.O.P.E. will provide three distinct types of housing communities:
_ Tiny Home Communities of about 1 acre each with about 24 homes
_ Tiny Home Communities on multi-acre lots with about 24 homes per acre
_ Container Home Apartment Communities with up to 40 multi-level units per acre some communities training, life skills classes and counseling.
