In-Person Community Meeting – Tiny House Village

Tukwila Tiny House Village Community Meeting
New Tiny House Village to Provide Safe, Attractive Alternative for People Living Outside
Riverton Park United Methodist Church
3118 S 140th St, Tukwila, WA 98168
Riverton Park United Methodist Church and the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) are planning to develop a tiny house village of 20 houses to provide shelter, safety, and community for individuals, couples, and people with pets experiencing homelessness on the church grounds at 3118 S 140th St, Tukwila, WA 98168.
The church has hosted tents for unhoused neighbors on their property for several years and wishes to replace these with heated, insulated tiny houses. The village will include robust onsite operational and security staffing through the Low Income Housing Institute along with onsite LIHI case management to help residents obtain permanent
housing, employment, health care, and other services.
The church hosts Tukwila Food Pantry, a large meal program, a community garden, and other services run by an extensive volunteer network including the residents and will continue to do this work in partnership with LIHI to support the residents. Referrals will be made by local Tukwila agencies of Tukwila neighbors living unsheltered.
