… “Helping Hands Building Homes For The Unsheltered” …

Hope Village was founded in January of 2016. The group is currently forming as a non profit 501c3. Our vision is to offer tiny housing alternatives for those that reside in Chippewa County, WI. Our vision is to create a tiny house village in the city of Chippewa Falls, the county seat of Chippewa County, WI

Hope Village will eventually be a community of 12 tiny homes nestled together and around a common building that will be the hub of the community. The common building will house the bathrooms, showers, laundry facilities, a community room, kitchen, meeting space, a maker space/shop and a retail space. We have researched various tiny home villages for the un-sheltered and want Hope Village to take the best of each, with the hopes of making Hope Village a great place to live and an asset to our community.

Each tiny home will have a sleeping area, a private bathroom area that will house a chemical toilet like you would find in an RV, a Kitchenette that will include a micro-wave and mini refrigerator. Each house will cost about $5000.00 to build using volunteer labor and a mixture of new and recycled materials.

In the early stages of the village’s development the homes will be used for emergency housing and each home will be hosted by a local church. Once the group acquirers a property for the village the houses will become transitional in nature.
