Lyndsay Rice - YWCA - Project Tiny Home/Youth Independence Program
Lindsey identified a number of programs offered by YWCA but indicated that she would speak about the two programs introduced by Wade.  Lindsey did share a video that enlightened members about the dimensions of homelessness for women and youth.
Tiny Hope Project
The Tiny Hope Project is a collaboration between YWCA and Doug Tarry Homes to purchase property and build accessible housing in St. Thomas including 20 tiny homes and 20 apartments.  The Tiny Homes Project will be environmentally appropriate with features such as solar heating and market gardens.  There will also be community programs for those residing in the tiny homes and apartments.  The project has purchased property in St. Thomas but is seeking to raise 1.25 million.  Information about fundraising can be obtained by contacting Lindsey at
Youth Independence Program
This program is funded by 100 people who care.  The program has been developed to address youth struggling with trauma and homelessness.  This is a 12-week life skills program for youth.
Members had questions of Lindsey about both programs.
Al thanked Lindsey for sharing the information about the important and needed work around both programs.  Al suggested that we might be hearing from Lindsey in the future regarding funding needs for the Tiny Hope Project.
