Building a City Where No One Sleeps Outside

Eden Village of Richmond VA is working to build a gated tiny home community for the chronically homeless. #GodsProject

Richmond's Journey

Efforts in other cities in the U.S.A. have proven that by giving a person a roof over their head and a secure place to sleep, then their bodies are no longer in survival mode, and they are able to strive. Eden Village of Richmond is planning on doing just that. We’re in efforts to raise dollars to buy land and build a secured tiny home community that will house our homeless friends, giving them purpose and allowing them to be a contributing member of our community.

What's In It For Us?

Can helping the helpless be of both economic and humanitarian benefit?

Local homeless advocates have identified approximately 700 homeless people in the Richmond Metropolitan area that consists of four cities and 17 counties. Homeless persons living on the streets affect property values and use many city resources, costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.

Mental illness, trauma, and addiction consume significant resources due to overuse of our emergency rooms and abundance of unpaid medical expenses. Then our homeless friends are sent back out on the streets with little or no support and the cycle recurs over and over again. This is a cycle we are determined to stop by giving security and support.

How We Can Affect Homelessness

Is it possible for Richmond to be a city where #NoOneSleepsOutside?

Being part of a community that knows and cares about you can make a huge difference in mental stability and breaking the cycle homelessness. It is our dream that we will be able to develop many Eden Villages and encourage others to do the same. Psalm 107:4-7- Some wandered in desert wastelands, finding no way to a city where they could settle. They were hungry and thirsty, and their lives ebbed away. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle.
