Community Roots Collaborative (C-ROOTS) was formed in 2017. Today it is a group of dedicated community members from all walks of life. We have put our hearts, efforts, and finances on the line in order to make the dream of building affordable tiny homes for our neighbors a reality. The lack of affordable housing has become a health crisis. We feel that in order to achieve a path towards stability and wellness one must have a permanent roof over their head.
We have 3 phases of construction occurring over the next 12 months. We plan to have 21 permanent small homes built and operating by August 2021.
All our homes are 300 sq. ft. tiny homes. They are all equipped with kitchen, full bath, bedroom, washer/dryer. They are designed with the intention of using every square foot of space.
We currently have only one model which is a 300sq ft. 1 bedroom. The current model can fit 1-3 residents. Small families will be a little tight but comfortable. We offer homes for couples with a single child or single parents with up to two children can fit this model. Our units have an additional 120 sq ft loft space that can be converted into a second double bed. We will be looking at different models and sizes for our next future development. More options to come soon!
Community Roots Collaborative provides a blended community to persons who are referred from our partners. Our partners continue to support the residence with wrap-around services while we ensure safe and secure housing. Fruit Valley Terrace offers residents the ability to sustain a level of self-sufficiency and space for personal growth that will help both the individual and their neighbors sustain their success throughout their lives
All residents coming to Community Roots’ Fruit Valley Terrace are based on referrals from our partner organizations at this time. If you are interested in one day being a resident, please reach out to our partner organizations and see if you are eligible to enroll in their case management services. After they are confident in the maturity of a person or families recovery and wellbeing, they will then refer those individuals to our open units.
