CHICO, Calif. - We’re getting our first look at what “Simplicity Village” in Chico could look like.
This weekend the Chico Housing Action Team, also known as CHAT volunteers, built tiny houses for homeless senior citizens.
Organizers are looking to house 40 to 50 people.
But the entire "Simplicity Village" project still needs approval from the city council.
“We're looking at an increase in the cost of housing and this is an answer for that," said CHAT founding member Robert Trausch.
"This is where people can actually have a truly affordable secure place -- and it’s been a very successful program at this point. We stabilize people, we get them the services they need and we get them back into society,” he added.
“CHAT” organizers said the ground was founded nearly five years ago and relies on donations for all of its funding.
The city manager is expected to present the “Simplicity Village” proposal to the Chico City Council on November 20, 2018.
