US (PA): Veterans in need could soon live in ‘tiny homes’ and work in a greenhouse

There’s an initiative to tackle homelessness among veterans here in Erie. Local organizations are teaming up to build tiny homes off of Robison Road next to the Erie Sports Center. The plan is for veterans to move into them before the end of 2023.

The initiative to help veterans in need has resulted in a partnership between the Erie Sports Center, Bookwell Travel, and Veterans Miracle Center Erie.

They want to build 20 tiny homes and a greenhouse next to the Erie Sports Center. Veterans will also be given the opportunity to work in the greenhouse and grow fresh produce.

“Hopefully, it will give them a sense of community, and they can start to develop relationships with people. They can start to get involved in coaching some of our programs or mentoring some of our players, which should give them a bit of purpose in life and help them make the transition,” says Troy Bingham. 

One leader from the Veterans Miracle Center Erie said this kind of work is beneficial for veterans. “Working with your hands helps people, especially veterans. We know that for a fact. It gives them confidence, and it’s a quiet environment, it’s not noisy and bangy, and all that stuff,” said John Kowalcyzk, founder of Veterans Miracle Center Erie.
