After a few years and a lot of hard work, the Veterans Community Project officially opens its door this week to 13 veterans. The organization just completed 13 tiny homes in Kansas City, Missouri and 11 men and two women are now moving into their own homes.
There are plans in the works to build 37 more tiny homes that will also house formerly homeless veterans. And most of those involved in building these 13 initial homes and working on the grounds have been volunteers.
"I think everybody is going to prosper there and they're going to thrive,” explains Chris Stout, one of three vets who started the Veterans Community Project. “I want to be able to see it and be there for them. Let them know this is just the beginning of a ton of great things."
