Tiny houses for homeless being built in Siloam Springs
Wednesday, September 5, 2018
SILOAM SPRINGS -- Residents got a chance recently to see inside the four tiny houses being built near the East Kenwood Missionary Baptist Church. The houses, which range from 400 to 600 square feet, will provide transitional housing for homeless families through Genesis House. The nonprofit organization is a day shelter that provides a place to take showers, do laundry, have a hot meal, use the phone and get referrals to other agencies. More information about the tiny house project and JumpStart program is available on the Genesis House website, genesishousesiloam.com. The organization has provided limited emergency housing through hotel vouchers in the past. Genesis House has offered a JumpStart program for the past 18 months, housing families in rental properties for 90 days.
