Santosha Village will be a 30-unit micro home village for the homeless, run by the homeless.

This transitional village will cost $2 per night, which will be paid by the residents. Each resident will have their private micro home without restriction on the length of stay.

We have currently built 4 homes and are searching to partner with our neighbors to co-create our 5-home pilot village.
