BOOTH 223


Check out a fun 96 square foot tiny home built by students from the Carpenters Joint Apprenticeship Program. This tiny home will become part of a veterans community, with shared bathrooms and facilities. It is 12’ x 8’ with a kitchenette and sleeping loft in addition to the main living space. Furnished by Reclaim Renew.

The Carpenters Joint Apprenticeship Program is a nationally recognized program that offers the opportunity of a job with a union contractor. Over a four-year period, participants in the program divide their time between working in the field and attending classes/shop training at the Carpenters Training Center. They earn while they learn, moving up the pay scale on the way to becoming a journey-level carpenter.

This 240 square foot home is part of the Veterans Community Project, with a full kitchen and bath in addition to the living area. It is an example of the homes built for Veterans Villages, that meet all city code requirements and will connect to city sewer, water and electric services.

Veterans Community Project (VCP) is a 501(c)(3) Missouri nonprofit corporation founded by Kansas City Veterans who were frustrated by rampant homelessness throughout the Veteran community. VCP is on a mission to eliminate Veteran homelessness by providing transitional housing and enabling access to exceptional 360-degree service solutions. Through contributions and partnerships, VCP is creating communities of tiny homes and onsite services to provide housing stability and address the underlying cause of veterans' homelessness, leading to more successful permanent housing outcomes.
