My name is Tim Cleasby and I am serving with HRDC to build capacity for the Housing First Village project for a year. I am originally from Washington, D.C, but have spent the last four years studying at Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina. Upon graduating with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science in Decemeber, 2016, I was eager to experience something entirely new. I have been thoroughly enjoying my first taste of Montana and I look forward to meeting all of you very soon.

On July 22, we will be starting the second tiny home build project. We are so thankful for all of the contributions that our community has made, but we still need your help!
If you have experience as architect, engineer, carpenter, or have construction experience, we would appreciate your help. Please bring any tools that you have! We will also be providing lunch, snacks, and drinks for all of our hard workers.
If you cannot make it we still want to hear from you! You can loan tools* or donate money for the future homes. We cannot wait for this project to start, so please join us in the fight against homelessness in Bozeman!
We will be building on the following dates @ HRDC, 32. S Tracy:

Want to find out more about chronic homelessness? "Under the Department of Housing and Urban Development's new definition, a chronically homeless individual is someone who has experienced homelessness for a year or longer, or who has experienced at least four episodes of homelessness in the last three years (must be a cumulative of 12 months), and has a disability. A family with an adult member who meets this description would also be considered chronically homeless."
