To build tiny homes on the 4th largest land-based reservation is to build for the sustainable future of a nation. This is not a quick fix for a long-term problem, this is the beginning of strategic planning for a long-term solution, this is nation building. It is our hope that the tiny homes will have a positive impact in the community by providing safe and supportive spaces, as individuals and families work toward goals of homeownership.
