KINGSTON, ONT. — The Ontario government is supporting the transfer of one acre of land and providing $200,000 to help build up to 25 tiny homes for military veterans, working in partnership with the Homes For Heroes Foundation and the City of Kingston, Ont. to convert a portion of the Kingston Provincial Campus into a veterans’ village.
The village will be constructed from prefabricated modular housing and each tiny home will provide transitional housing for one veteran and be a private self-contained unit that includes a kitchen, living room, bathroom and sleeping area, states a release.
“The Homes For Heroes program was created with direct input from our Canadian veterans. The program offers housing for veterans who are having a difficult time transitioning and provides the necessary support services to help them successfully reintegrate,” said David Howard, president of the Homes For Heroes Foundation, in a statement.
“We are thankful to have the support of the Province of Ontario and the City of Kingston. Both groups have shown incredible leadership, dedication, and support to end the issue of veteran homelessness. Together we are committed to helping those that once stood on guard for Canada.”
