TINY HOUSE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
When my team and I started to design the Tiny (Toilet) Home, we knew we were onto something special. So we thought we'd put it to good use and help solve a problem in, so to speak, our own backyard.
With 1 in 5 of LA's community college population and 1 in 10 of those enrolled in Cal State University suffering from housing insecurity, it's up to us as a community to enact change.
By partnering with private landowners near campus, Our Backyard Homes can provide the link in the chain of change. Our portable micro-homes wheel into pockets of available residential space--without the landowner lifting a finger. Each micro-home is infrastructure-independent, meaning all of its power, water, and sewage is taken care of on the unit.
We design, fund, and build the homes. Something we take great pride in doing.
This crowdfund video was designed to promote our cause. The original campaign is closed, but if you'd still like to donate please visit to make a tax-deductible contribution!
Our Backyard Homes is a 501c3.
Our scholarship program is a reward to students championing through housing insecurity while struggling to better their future through higher education. As a finalist for the 2018 LA County Housing Innovation Challenge grant for up to $1,000,000, I know Our Backyard Homes has a bright future ahead of itself. And so do our community's kids.
