A Tiny House Expo will be held on Saturday, September 26, at the Unitarian Universalist
Fellowship grounds, 24 Fellowship Way in Bayside from noon – 6 p.m. AHHA (Affordable Homeless Housing Alternatives) is sponsoring the first annual Tiny House Expo of small affordable living units for the homeless in a village setting. This will be a fun family event that demonstrates the actual living options and offers food, entertainment, and educational forums as a fundraiser to support the work of AHHA.
The Expo will feature Humboldt-made dwellings that can assist having legal, safe, warm, and dry places to sleep for all our neighbors. People can tour examples of tiny houses in village set up, temporary shelter/tent camps, Car Camping, and more. Two panel discussions will be held:
1) on issues of the establishment of immediate places to live for the over 2,000 unhoused neighbors in Humboldt County and 2) a panel of local clergy on the Religious Imperative in a Shelter Crisis. Festive food and entertainment will be available throughout the day. The Expo will help raise funds for AHHA’s efforts to create immediate solutions for ‘safe, warm, and dry first’.
This first ever Expo of community village options for those who live on the edge will be an opportunity for the wider public to see what settled camps might look like, and what they might contribute to the economy, equity, and the environment.
