The Tiny Homes movement can offer creative, quicker, lower-cost, and beautiful solutions for dignified housing for those seeking independent living. The Tiny Home Summit 2.0 will bring together experts from Chicago and across the U.S. to discuss solutions to meet the urgent need for homes for the unstably housed, those needing affordable housing, and others seeking free-standing, smaller-footprint living in Chicago.

The first Tiny Homes Summit, focused on youth experiencing homelessness, was hosted in April 2016. Topics included financing, housing as HIV prevention, public policy issues, and strategies for developing a tiny home community for youth experiencing homelessness in Chicago. The summit also displayed a model of the winning design from the Tiny Homes Competition, hosted by the American Institute of Architects in Chicago, Pride Action Tank, Alphawood Foundation, Landon Bone Baker, and Windy City Times. You can watch videos from the first Tiny Homes Summit here.
