Tiny home Woodstock

Homelessness has been an ongoing issue across the province and with the concerns exacerbated by the pandemic. Solving homelessness has become more crucial.

Inspired by A Better Tent City in Kitchener, The Woodstock-Oxford Rotary hopes to create its solution to the crisis.

They have partnered with community partners to bring this project to life.

Their mission on this initiative is to provide a safe, supportive responsible community where people experiencing homelessness are welcomed, valued, and treated with dignity and respect.

"It is less than 100ft, insulated, it has two windows and a door. It will have a bed, a chair, a table it will have power, partially solar power, and it will have heat." said Steve Zehr, president of the Woodstock-Oxford Rotary Club.

They are looking for community support to help.

"We are asking for funding; Woodstock Oxford Rotary initial fundraiser will be May 1st, you can come to buy a ticket for 30 dollars, and the second way is you can sponsor that event."

They are currently seeking approval from their city council to build tiny homes for the homeless community.

This model is sitting at Home Hardware in Woodstock. 

The property is in question, but it will be just outside the Woodstock area and close to a bus route.
