Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin
Tiny House Village for Veterans
The Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin is having a ribbon cutting and open house for the James A. Peterson Veteran Village and SC Johnson Community Center on November 5th at 1pm. The event will include the Navy Band Great Lakes and the Honor Guard, tours of the campus and light refreshments.
The James A. Peterson Veteran Village is made up of 15 tiny homes that were built by a variety of groups, including Case High School students, Milwaukee Tool, Home Depot, veterans and even Zack Giffin, co-host of "Tiny House Nation". In addition to the tiny homes, there is a memorial brick patio, murals, military flagpoles, raised garden beds, a community kitchen and gathering area, a welcome room and a donation drop off site. Food and clothing are also available for veterans who may not live in the village.
Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin's goal is to house homeless veterans while supplying them with all the tools needed to break the cycle of homelessness and help them to once again become productive members of society.

Earlier this year, I had an opportunity to meet with Jeff Gustin, Executive Director of Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin and tour the tiny homes. What a wonderful program.
