Residential Community for Victoria Area Homeless Coming
Homelessness is a growing problem in cities across the nation and in many communities, officials are working to find solutions. Here in Victoria, part of the solution is a community of tiny homes just outside the city being put together by a nonprofit group called Promise Pointe.
The project is located off US 59 just a few miles outside Victoria near Raisin, and it is modeled after a similar community in Austin called Community First!, and is expected to house around 20 residents living in tiny homes that will share a community kitchen and bathroom along with a garden and chicken coop.
Promise Pointe is working with the Homeless Coalition, Mid Coast Family Services and Perpetual Help Home, and plans to also include community 'micro-enterprises' that could include growing and selling produce and eggs, as an example.
