The mission of the Warrior Village Project is to provide affordable, permanent housing for homeless veterans while training the next generation of home builders. We build tiny houses in construction classes on high school campuses for nonprofit service providers who will use them to house homeless veterans.
The Warrior Village Project is a collaboration of building industry associations, nonprofits serving veterans, high schools and community colleges, business and private donors, and private citizens working together to provide affordable, permanent housing for homeless veterans while training the next generation of home builders. Each of the organizations involved in the Project is providing expertise and resources consistent with its unique capabilities and the mission of its organization.
Students will build 400 sq. ft. cottages in two modules in building and construction classes on their campuses. The modules will be transported to sites in San Diego County and joined together as permanent residences on permanent foundations. Through the Warrior Village Project, students will learn skills that will prepare them for careers in the building industry or higher education in STEM disciplines, and veterans will receive permanent, affordable housing.
