OPERATION: TINY TRIBUTE
Together we can help end veteran homelessness.
With the purchase of any qualifying trailer and/or framing kit from Trailer Made Custom Trailers, they will donate a percentage to Operation: Tiny Tribute. Those donations will then turn into a free tiny home for a homeless veteran.
Operation: Tiny Tribute is run by Warrior Homesteads, a non-profit, out of the Cincinnati, OH area. Their mission is to permanently end Veteran homelessness.
For many veterans, the return from active duty to civilian life is a destabilizing transition. Following discharge, the lack of adequate social support and unemployment coupled with the “hidden wounds of war “have led to homelessness for many servicemen and women. Our mission is to provide these veterans with a single occupancy homestead on farmable land, for free. The goal is to allow time to heal, retrain, and successfully regain independence.
According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, at any given time there are 47,725 homeless Veterans with an additional 1.4 million at risk of becoming homeless.
In their 2015 Annual Homelessness Assessment Report to congress, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sites a 30% drop in Veteran homelessness since 2010, but only a 4% drop from 2014-2015.
