Construction Set To Begin On Emergency Housing Project

A project begins Monday to build little houses for people without houses. A micro shelter community will serve as emergency transitional housing for the unsheltered on Mark Street off South Market behind the RABA facility. Each of the tiny houses is 64 square feet and includes a bed, heater, and access to a bathroom. “Haven of Hope” out of Oroville will provide weekly laundry and shower services. The village was inspired by a program in Eugene, Oregon that the United Way thought would work well in Redding. Residents will be selected by a committee that includes United Way staff, neighbors and other partners. Those who live there must commit to a code of conduct for their stay of up to 10 months. Construction of the 8 homes should be done by early March, when the first residents can move in.
