Beloved Community village

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

Beloved Community Village is a community of people experiencing homelessness in Denver, Colorado that will provide small-scale Tiny homes for up to 22 people (11 Tiny Homes), beginning this year as an 180-day pilot project. It will be democratically self-governed with a mission to provide homes for those people experiencing homelessness that will also cultivate community living and self-empowerment. The Village is a place that enables people without homes to reestablish their place in a community. It’s a place where they can 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 solution to homelessness.

Overview:

Beloved Community Village will be 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 seek to provide a viable solution in the midst of the current housing crisis. The village will include 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 are better prepared than the oppressed to understand the terrible significance of an oppressive society?”
