Artwork on the Cause:: get into Oakland's New Tiny House Village for 18-23 y/o Unhoused Youth

Youth Spirit Artworks will be opening a tiny house village for houseless youth.  The emergency shelter village is still under construction, but they are shooting to open at the end of January/early February.  All residents will have their own tiny house, but the kitchen, bathrooms, and maker space are communal.  In addition, all residents will be a part of Youth Spirit Artworks' core social-justice based art and job skills building program.

Residents will pay 30% of their income toward a monthly program fee and says it's okay if you have zero income, but all will receive a $175/mo stipend for being apart of the program.  

If you are aware of anyone between the ages of 18-23 with no children, who are currently unhoused and looking for a place to stay in the Berkeley/Oakland area, have them email shy@youthspiritartworks.org and they will receive the flyer/application to apply asap.  633 Hegenberger.  You can, also, visit https://youthspiritartworks.org/programs/tiny-house-village/

These homes are BEAUTIFUL and even more of that word, it's all for a cause.  Pass the word on.
