Capital Improvement Program

It is a harsh fact that many people remain sleeping on the streets despite the array of available outreach and provider programs.

An ad-hoc working group of volunteers has been meeting for over a year to engage in some preliminary thinking about what a tiny home village might look like in Albuquerque. The project’s current proposal does not offer unconditional housing. Instead, a holistic housing intervention will be proposed that will prioritize safe and dignified housing within a supported single-site community setting, and providing autonomy for the villagers and their reintegration into broader society.

Currently, BernCo is developing the Request for Proposal that will identify the scope of services, selection criteria and a project timeline for an organization that would oversee the planning and development of the tiny home village site and operations project. Last November, voters approved a $2 million general obligation bond to fund the development of the tiny home village project.

The Tiny Home Village Project is a collaboration between Bernalillo County Commissioner Debbie O'Malley and City of Albuquerque Councilor Diane Gibson.

Tiny Home Village Forum Held April 3, 2017

On April 3, 2017, a meeting was held at the South Valley Multi-purpose Center, 2008 Larrazolo Rd. SW, 87105

The meeting featured a presentation by Tracy Sharpe, the executive director of Saranam. Saranam’s mission is "to empower families to end their homelessness and poverty through housing, education, and supportive communities.” Although the Tiny Home Village Project will not be able to accommodate families, Saranam’s emphasis on community building and a curriculum programme echo the Tiny Home Village priorities. We will use the Saranam experience to think through further how community and a self-development programme can be employed to aid THV villagers’ stabilization and progress. We will also use the evening to coordinate volunteer efforts and provide updates on where the project stands.
