Beloved Community village

Beloved Community Village in collaboration with  Colorado Village Collaborative  is proud to present…”Denver’s first Tiny Homes Project.

The Village

Beloved Community Village is a community of people experiencing homelessness in Denver, Colorado that provides small-scale Tiny homes for up to 22 people (11 Tiny Homes), that began this year July (2017) as a 180-day pilot project. It is democratically self-governed with a mission that provides homes for those people experiencing homelessness that also cultivates community living and self-empowerment. The Village is a place that enables people without homes to re-establish their place in a community. It’s a place where they will rediscover Talents, renew their purpose and restore their dignity. Most importantly, it’s a place they can call home. A truly radical experiment to help provide just one small ( No pun Intended ) solution to homelessness.

Overview:

Beloved Community Village is a self-governing tiny home village whose purpose is to provide a home base and safe place for those who are presently in Denver and have no other place to live. With this collection of secure and insulated homes, we provide a viable solution in the midst of the current housing crisis. The village includes 11 Tiny homes for individuals and couples, 1 CircHouse (for food preparation and gatherings), Restrooms and Showers. This village is inspired by many other similar, successful villages across the country.

 Beloved Community Village exists because…

We, as people needing homes, know we can’t keep waiting for someone else to build them for us.
We must take matters into our own hands and create our own home together with compassion, community, and dignity.
We, in solidarity, take the responsibility to build, govern and sustain our village.
We, as people coming from survival on the streets, know the vast and critical need for safe spaces to sleep without being rousted by police or private security and being under the constant threat of violence.
We believe that all people deserve safe sleep
We the village residents will do all we can to provide this for our community.
We envision the world where all people have this basic right to create homes together.

“Who is better prepared than the oppressed to understand the terrible significance of an oppressive society?”

  2. This is incredible! I hope and pray that Denver allows this to help everyone. At live in southern Colorado, and would love to build a tiny house, but zoning laws prohibit structures less than 600 sq ft. I am just 1 disabled person. I don’t need that much and can’t afford to build that large on a very low fixed income.
