Thank you all so much for your support in our campaign to bring more housing options to the Lawrence Community Shelter. With your donations, we are close to reaching 10% of our goal!
I am more than excited to share that Phase I of Monarch Village recently received a Planet Positive Award from Metropolis. The Planet Positive Awards recognize the most creative projects and products from around the world that benefit people and planet. The awards are given to represent the highest achievements today in design that address climate change, ecosystem health, human health and equity.
Phase I of Monarch Village is the top winner in the multifamily category, meaning our project met the challenges that come with sheltering the unhoused using resource-efficient strategies that do not contribute to the climate crisis. The twelve tiny homes are the first of their kind in North America to feature full, private bathrooms for residents.
With your contribution we can begin adding ten more of these unique tiny homes to the Lawrence Community Shelter. Help us reach our goal to further the precedent of sustainable and dignified housing for the unsheltered.
