Tiny Houses

Please consider a donation to our Tiny House Program
The cost of materials for a tiny house is $4,500.  Donations of any amount will help.

To contact the Tiny House program, email tinyhouses@lihi.org.

In partnership with the Cities of Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia, and with faith communities and building trade organizations throughout the State of Washington, the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) is one of the largest providers of tiny house village shelters in the nation, ensuring that people’s experience in homelessness is as safe, dignified, and brief as possible.

Tiny houses offer tremendous benefits over tents – they are safe, weatherproof, and lockable – and the communities that we help build allow residents to reclaim their dignity and get on a path to housing in a supportive village environment.

Each tiny house has electricity, overhead light, and a heater.  Each tiny house village has kitchen and restroom facilities, onsite showers and laundry, a counseling office, and a welcome/security hut where donations of food, clothing, and hygiene items can be dropped off.
