Sponsorships, usually $3,000 per tiny home, are designed to help supplement the ongoing operational costs of the villages, according to Hope of the Valley.
The Valley Divine 9 — a group of Black fraternity and sorority organizations in San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Simi Valley — have come together to sponsor a housing unit for the homeless at North Hollywood’s Whitsett West Tiny Home Village.
Last month, the group toured the complex, which is operated by the Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission.
‘I’m impressed,” said Fallon Nelms of the village complex. “Very nicely done.”
“It’s a lot like a dorm room, more spacious than I expected,” said Adam Jackson of the dwellings.
Divine 9 is one of many groups and individuals who are sponsoring units at Tony Homes complexes supervised by Hope of the Valley. Sponsorships, usually $3,000 per tiny home, are designed to help supplement the ongoing operational costs of the villages. Monthly payment options are available, according to Fonda Rosing, Hope of the Valley development associate.
