It all started with a Woman named Smokie Mcgee. I wanted to just build her a Tiny Home to have a safe warm place to sleep, like so many of us already have. That was over 5 years ago, and since then, we have been building Tiny House Emergency Shelters for people all over, inspiring generations of people world wide to get up and start building tiny houses in their communities for those in need, building mobile shower units to help people get clean, consulting many private and city run communites, speaking at many events, colleges, and lectures and much more...
With the Corona Virus Pandemic and the insane WILDFIRES raging here in California, the demand for Emergency Shelter is exploding and people need our help more than ever!
We build Emergency Tiny House Shelters to protect people; once street-living begins, being able to get out of it is ten times less likely by the day. We’re getting floods of new e-mails a week now- from individuals, families and other service groups who need these Emergency shelters ASAP and we can build them, but our equipment is worn out.
After 5 years and tons of wear and tear (rebuilds, fixes, parts, breakdowns) our equipment is on its last legs. With new Tiny House Builds in the pipeline and just a short time away.....We NEED new equipment! In order to keep building and delivering shelters, and bring things up to the next level of commitment (read about that below), we desperately need new gear to be able to Answer The Call. First and foremost is a new truck. The work horse we've had these past 5 years has been to hell and back a few times; we’ve rebuilt the rear differential twice, the alternator and suspension, but unfortunately its toast.
In addition to a truck, we need a new trailer. Our little trailer is light duty, and we’ve used it countless times to ferry our Emergency Tiny House Shelters and equipment all over Los Angeles and Southern California- but it's in desperate need of repairs now; it’s just not heavy-duty enough. It's served us well and with repairs could still do small jobs, but we need a heavy duty trailer to accommodate the amount of shelters and equipment that we already have requests for.
This Campaign is to raise the funds needed to supply us with a new truck, new trailer and new tools which would not only enable us to provide shelters right now, it will make it possible to begin the next phase of our mission which is to acquire and purchase land and warehouse space.
Your contribution does make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Make a donation of ANY amount and share this goal with friends and family to raise these funds as fast as possible; because time is crushingly short for those without shelter and hundreds of thousands have been left outside without basic safety or shelter.
It's truly life or death without shelter, especially now!
Thank you for your support and helping us Answer The Call!
