The Pride Action Tank, a project of the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, and the Windy City Times, along with lead sponsor Polk Bros. Foundation, hosted a discussion about using tiny homes to house youth who are experiencing homelessness. The Tiny Home Summit was held on April 18 and 19 at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Summit topics included financing, housing as HIV prevention and public policy issues. Experts from around the country will also share their experiences creating tiny home communities. The second day of the summit focused on creating strategies for developing a tiny homes community for youth experiencing homelessness in Chicago. During the summit, a model of the winning design of the Tiny Homes Competition—hosted by the American Institute of Architects–Chicago, Pride Action Tank, Alphawood Foundation, Landon Bone Baker, and Windy City Times— was on display.
