About Us

Tiny House Community Development's mission is to be a coalition of diverse individuals and local organizations who aim to reduce homelessness by engaging in public and private partnerships to create tiny home communities. Working alongside people experiencing homelessness, our goal is to encourage positive community engagement and foster an educational experience in a welcoming environment.

Tiny House Community Development is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit organization working to develop tiny house communities throughout North Carolina. These communities will consist of 3 -10 units on individual lots. Tiny houses will be leased to residents based on their income and current situation.

THCD will work with local nonprofit housing organizations (CoC) that will assist in qualifying potential residents. Our intent is to create safe, permanent, affordable housing for those experiencing homelessness. We are currently working in Greensboro, NC High Point, NC, and Winston Salem, NC developing tiny house communities. Currently, we have one community built with 6 tiny houses occupied.
