Interested in starting a village?
SquareOne provides consulting services
to help you along the way...
In the absence of federal and state resources to adequately address our prolonged housing crisis, SquareOne is committed to developing local, community-driven shelter and housing initiatives.
We believe that building a village should be a collaborative process. Our research and experience has shown that involving the surrounding community and future residents in the development process creates a stronger sense of ownership that has the ability to:
respond to needs and desires specific to the local community,
draw on additional support and resources that already exist within the community, and
overcome the common "not in my backyard" (NIMBY) opposition, and build broad political support
SquareOne provides consulting services to assist these initiatives in achieving their goal of starting a successful tiny home village.
Our process begins with technical assistance in developing the components of a comprehensive concept plan and project prospectus. This provides you with a tool that you can use to market your project to prospective partners, funders, and city officials in order to build the political will for your project.
