Hope Village is a non-profit 501c3 that was founded in January of 2016. Our vision is to offer tiny housing alternatives for those that reside in Chippewa County, WI. Our vision is to create a tiny house village in the city of Chippewa Falls, the county seat of Chippewa County, WI
Hope Village will eventually be a community of 10 tiny homes nestled together and around a common building that will be the hub of the community. The common building will house the bathrooms, showers, laundry facilities, a community room, kitchen, meeting space, maker space/shop, and retail space. We have researched various tiny home villages for the un-sheltered and want Hope Village to take the best of each, with the hopes of making Hope Village a great place to live and an asset to our community.
Each tiny home will have a sleeping area, a private bathroom area that will house a chemical toilet as you would find in an RV, a Kitchenette that will include a microwave and mini-refrigerator. Each house cost about $5000.00 – $10000.00 to build using volunteer labor and a mixture of new and recycled materials.
In the early stages of the village’s development, the homes were used for emergency housing, and each home was hosted by a local church. Now that the group has acquired the property for the village the houses will become transitional in nature.
