Veterans 1st of Northeast Wisconsin Tiny Homes Village
Welcome: Veterans 1st of Northeast Wisconsin Tiny Homes Village is a non-profit agency that will provide a safe, supportive veteran community of tiny homes for our area veterans in need of transitional and affordable housing.
Our vision is that after three phases of construction, we will have 21 tiny homes within a veterans' village. Of the 21 tiny homes, one will be a Community Center with an office, kitchen, and meeting area to be shared by all veterans within our village and area veterans from the greater Northeast Wisconsin community. The remaining 20 homes, will be a mix of affordable and transition homes.

We are also very aware of other complex issues that veterans face. First and foremost is the high and rising rate of suicide, along with substance abuse and mental health concerns.

Our Tiny Homes Village will be built in three phases.
Phase 1 will be six homes and a Community Center. Phase 2 will be seven more homes and Phase 3 will be seven more homes.
