We are a group of former elected officials and growing Tiny Home movement of community changemakers around the USA advocating for tiny home housing, workforce housing, and rapid rehousing programs who are pushing beyond the current debate and stigma and getting the job done.

Our team’s approach recognizes that all public servants can (and should be) innovators, progress moves at the speed of trust, and frontline workers and residents have the best understanding of problems and potential solutions.

Indeed, there is evidence all around us that a new movement of innovation is emerging in cities and counties all across North America. However, the work has just begun, and these public problem-solvers need support to bring new ways of thinking about Tiny Home innovation to the mainstream.
