Fraternity Bros Plan To Build Micro-Homes To Shelter Struggling Veterans

The Phi Kappa Psi fraternity from the University of Hunstville Alabama is doing a whole lotta good, or at least they’re trying to. After encounters with the city’s many homeless people, most of them veterans, the fraternity wanted to find a way to give back. Seeing their heroes struggling, living in the woods and on the streets, was not sitting well with them. Their response? Foundations for Tomorrow.

Foundations for Tomorrow is the fraternity’s new initiative to build tiny mobile homes for homeless veterans. 30 homes can be built on just 1 acre of land. Fraternity members have identified several plots of land in the city that they can acquire for these tiny home communities. The Alabama Center for Sustainable Energy is even providing solar panels for the homes so energy is cost-free. Living, eating, working, gardening, and just sharing better quality lives together is all the fraternity wants for the homeless.

This powerful movement was inspired by villages all over the country that are housing the homeless, and it’s definitely a positive trend to follow.

It takes $5000 to build one of these 500 square foot micro-homes, but the fraternity hopes to raise money for their cause on their CrowdRise page. The boys will be building the houses themselves, with the help of future residents, volunteers, and fellow students. This is an amazing idea and a great way to thank and support veterans who have done so much for us.
