We are a newly-formed, 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Nevada County, California.
Our board currently consists of three members whose contributions to the the organization are voluntary and 100% unpaid. One of our top goals is to put all of the money that we receive as donations toward housing unhoused people. In other words, if you donate $10,000, we want your $10,000 to go directly to housing. In an effort to utilize donations most effectively, we will use volunteer labor whenever possible. We will be seeking volunteers from the community to work with us. We will be working with various agencies and social workers in Nevada and Placer counties to help identify individuals and families to be housed, with an emphasis on veterans and single parents.
We will be helping individuals and families become residents of T.I.N.Y. Home communities based on multiple factors including demonstrating a desire to be off the street, actively working to better their current situation, and committing to collaborate with their community to meet common needs and goals. We are giving people a hand up, not a hand-out.
