Chandler Blvd. Tiny Home Village
Chandler Blvd Tiny Home Village is the first of a series of villages made up of “tiny homes” in San Fernando Valley. With many thanks to Councilman Paul Krekorian and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, it officially opened its doors in North Hollywood Monday, February 1st, 2021, welcoming its first unhoused guests who were coming in from living on nearby streets, under freeway overpasses and in parks and homeless encampments in the North Hollywood area. The village sits along Chandler Boulevard, in a half-acre plot near the north end of North Hollywood Recreation Center. The first village of its kind in Los Angeles, Chandler Blvd has 40 homes (75 beds) manufactured by Pallet Shelter. The Chandler Blvd. Tiny Home Village was developed by the City of Los Angeles. Each tiny home is 64 square feet in size, has two beds, heat, air-conditioning, windows, a small desk and a front door.
The tiny home villages are interim or “transitional” housing for those living on the sidewalks and encampments around the area. They provide a “bridge” between the street and more permanent housing solutions. Residents can live there for free, so long as they are on a positive pathway to permanent housing which generally take 3-6mos to find for incoming guests. As Los Angeles City Mayor, Eric Garcetti has pointed out, “The streets shouldn’t be the waiting room” for more permanent housing solutions. Through our partnership with LAHSA (Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority) and many others we provide “wrap around” services that include onsite, meals, showers, case management, housing navigation, mental health, job training and placement. We are doing our very best to MAKE HOMELESS HISTORY!
