The long awaited Tiny Home Village in the Arroyo Seco park below Ave. 60 is open to the public for touring starting tonight and all weekend. There are people there from Hope of the Valley (who is running the shelter) to answer questions and show you around. My husband and I were able to attend a smaller opening last night and we were very impressed, mainly with the passion of the provider, Hope of the Valley. They were able to answer all of our questions and we felt really really good about this project when we left. So if you have concerns, go. You might find answers and have some fears alleviated. If you are excited and thankful that something is finally being done, go. You will hear exactly what is happening and see where there are opportunities to actually help. Also next Friday 10/22 there will be an Art Walk down there with food trucks etc. All the info is here: https://www.hopeofthevalley.org/tinyhomes/arroyoseco/ There is also a committee forming through our District 14 council office that is tasked with helping to support the village. They are looking for people who might be able to provide art classes, vocational counseling, etc. Hope of the Valley will also be providing a lot of these services, but the communities' involvement makes it even better. After all, these people are OUR homeless community. You may even know some of them. I'll keep posting as opportunities for involvement arise but please, at least go check it out.
