Come learn about the big changes that can come from a small housing footprint.
Join us next Monday evening to hear from the inspiring inner city Detroit community organizer Faith Fowler. Learn how communities in Detroit are building tiny homes as one solution to the housing and poverty crises there. It is hoped that this talk will spark conversations about creative ways to address housing and poverty issues in our own community.
Faith Fowler is the Senior Pastor of Cass Community United Methodist Church and Executive Director of Cass Community Social Services (CCSS), a Detroit non-profit agency which responds to poverty with programs for food, health care, housing and employment. She has held these roles since 1994.
This event is part of the series “The Compassionate Society or Living as if We Give a Damn…” organized by The Sustainability Project and co-sponsored by New Dawn, Tiny Houses in Nova Scotia Meetup, the CBU Community Garden Project, the Animal Ethics Project, the Cooperative Study Club and CBU’s Office of Research and Graduate Studies, the Shannon School of Business and the School of Arts and Social Sciences.
