BIG things are happening in the world of Tiny Houses right here in Apopka! Tiny Houses are making a BIG difference in the lives of two deserving people—a US Military Veteran, and a survivor of Domestic Violence.
A one-day Tiny House of Hope Fundraising Event will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2016 from 9 am – 5 pm at the Apopka UCF Incubator. Whether you’re a Tiny House Enthusiast, a Prepper, Down-sizer, Global Trekker, Caregiver or just plain curious about Tiny Houses, this event is pure delight!
Attend this free fundraising event and watch carpenters build a Tiny House in just ONE DAY! Manufactured by Sherwood’s Tiny Houses, an Apopka UCF Business Incubator client and NOAH Certified builder. This is also your opportunity to tour 3 Tiny House models, attend Tiny House workshops, and take part in a Silent Art Auction.
The National Organization for Alternative Housing, Inc. (NOAH) has a program to provide Tiny Houses of Hope to deserving individuals who are homeless and in need of a hand-up while on their path to restoration. NOAH is a 501(c)(3) charity and trade association for the Tiny House on Wheels industry; setting the standard for safety and quality in the manufacturing of Tiny Houses on Wheels, in the United States.
The goal is to fund the build of (at least) two Tiny Houses of Hope. The recipient for one home has been determined, but nominations for a US Military Veteran are still being considered. Nominate a deserving veteran here.
