Charleston homeless advocates look to tiny house as model

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Charleston homeless advocates hope a small structure being built with mainly donated materials will become a model for affordable shelter for those living in tents in the city, but organizers must first find a place to put the dwelling.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports a dedication for the first tiny house was held Monday afternoon at a construction site on a city-owned lot, but the unfinished structure will have to be moved off the lot Tuesday because it isn’t compatible with neighborhood regulations.

Denise Cromwell with Project Street Outreach says the homeless coalition is tracking down leads on possible land donations.

Homeless Helpers of Charleston is planning a meeting Feb. 3 at the Charleston County library to discuss possible solutions to the homeless problem.
