A Tiny Home From Maxwell is a fundraising campaign started by Maxwell alumni for A Tiny Home for Good, with a goal of raising $25,000 to build 1 home for a veteran facing homelessness in 2018.
A Tiny Home For Good was started in Nov 2014 by Syracuse University, Maxwell School alum Andrew Lunetta to support individuals facing homelessness within the Syracuse area. The mission of THG is to provide affordable, safe, and dignified homes and foster strong community partnerships to ensure resident stability.
After a very tough first year of community outreach to fight stigmas surrounding homeless and build support, THG broke ground in 2016 on two homes – just a five-minute walk from SU. Since then, they’ve built 6 units, with 4 more completing in January 2018. It costs approximately $25,000 to build each house, and THG’s goal is to raise funds this winter to build a total of 7 more houses in 2018. That’s where you come in!
We are reaching out to the Maxwell community with a goal of raising at least $25,000 to build 1 home for a veteran facing homelessness within Syracuse in 2018. For many of us, the work done by THG embodies why we were drawn to the Maxwell School in the first place – community, impact, service, humility, the Athenian Oath. We hope that you join the THG community to help us break the cycle of chronic homeless one life at a time.
