Who We Are

Hope Village – Tiny Housing Alternatives, Inc is a non profit 501c3 that was founded in January of 2016. Our vision is to offer tiny housing alternatives for those that reside in Chippewa County, WI. Our vision from day one was to create a tiny house village in the city of Chippewa Falls, the county seat of Chippewa County, WI

Hope Village has built 11 tiny homes and provided for dozens of families and individuals in need of temporary housing alternatives. That number will only continue to grow as homelessness, poverty and socioeconomic difficulties challenge people’s ability to live a quality way of life. Hope Village’s vision is to build a community supported with resources and opportunities for its guests so they can be equipped with the necessary tools and skills to get back on their feet.

In the early stages of the village’s development the homes were used for emergency housing and each home was hosted by a local church.

What We Do

Hope Village is currently a community of 10 tiny homes nestled together and adjacent to a community center that will be the hub of the community. The community center houses the bathrooms, showers, laundry facilities, a community room, kitchen, meeting space, and a severe weather shelter. Hope Village hopes to add a maker space/shop and a retail space to the property. 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 has a sleeping area, a private bathroom area that will house a chemical toilet like you would find in an RV, a Kitchenette that includes a micro-wave and mini refrigerator. Each house cost between $5000.00 – $10000.00 to build using volunteer labor and a mixture of new and recycled materials.

Our next phase of development will include the building of 28 units of affordable housing. This will consist of 3 six unit apartments and 5 duplexes, the units will be a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms. The rent from these apartments will help Hope Village be sustainable well into the future.
