It Takes a Tiny House Village: A Comparative Case Study of Barriers and Strategies for the Integration of Tiny House Villages for Homeless Persons in Missouri

Abstract

Although interest in addressing homelessness with tiny house villages continues to grow, they face numerous barriers, from land use laws to resident concerns about homeless populations. This research examines such barriers, in addition to strategies for the integration of such developments. The study finds that it is important that tiny house villages for homeless residents address potential not-in-my-backyard (NIMBY) concerns. However, the study also finds that there are strategies and enabling factors which facilitate the integration of these developments. The study has resulted in the establishment of strategies for integrating tiny house villages for the homeless into communities.
