The Kehilla Economic Justice Committee is working with Youth Spirit Artworks (YSA), East Bay Housing Organizations (EBHO), and many other partners to help build the YSA Tiny House Village for homeless youth.  With the cooperation of the City of Oakland, City of Refuge UCC will host the Tiny House Village at 8400 Enterprise Way in Oakland.

Kehilla members were able to tour a Tiny House prototype at Kehilla on May 23rd , and a number of you have already signed up to help.  Kehilla members Nikee Borden and Sam Gast have taken the lead and are trained build leaders. You can join the team by signing up for any of the build dates shown above.  Give back to your community, while learning the construction skills needed to build a Tiny Home.

Please contact me if you have questions!
