  1. Homelessness is a problem that affects many cities within American and the world. Recently, cities like South-Los Angeles, California have started initiatives to create affordable housing in the form of tiny houses. Programs like Cass Community Tiny Homes in Detroit can be applied to big cities that have some budge to work with affordable housing and section 8 housing as well as working with non-profit and volunteer organizations to present a rent-to-own living option (Cass Community Social Services 2018). People who participate in these types of programs have to follow specific guidelines like finding/maintaining a job, meeting with financial councilors and keeping up with their physical and mental health via services offered by the same program. Moreover, tiny home communities can be an affordable and alternative way to prevent homelessness and help people transition from homelessness into having stable living conditions.
