San Jose's first tiny home community for the homeless opens


From: KTVU News

The following is information on a homeless community.

We need this kind of progression in West Virginia.


It's been years in the making and now San Jose's first tiny home community officially opened on Thursday, complete with security and resident services.

Bicycle racks hang by the doors and flowers line the walkways at The Maybury Bridge Housing Project. Located at 1408 Maybury Rd. in the city's northeast corner, the atmosphere is intended to make it feel like home.


Both Governor Gavin Newsom and Mayor Sam Liccardo were on hand to tour the units that took years to conceive and thousands of volunteer hours to build. Now residents have moved off the streets and into the units.

Newsom said addressing homelessness needs to be a top priority.


"I'm in for the long haul. We own this. We're not pointing fingers anymore. We own this," said Newsom. He said public projects like this are just the beginning. "The work that was done her can quickly be replicated at half the time elsewhere, so I could not be more enthusiastic about where we're going to be in two or three years."
