Tiny house plan for foster care teens moves forward
Posted September 13
MILWAUKEE, WI — Teenagers in foster care may have a new place to live when they age out of the system.
The City of Milwaukee is moving forward with plans to build tiny homes for the teens. The City Plan Commission approved the project Monday.
Thirty-six tiny homes could be built on a plot of land along Humboldt Boulevard near East Capitol.
Each tiny home would be up to 350 square feet and would include a bathroom and kitchen.
Former Foster Kids between the ages of 18 and 25 could live there. The plan was developed in an effort to counter homelessness. The commission must approve a more detailed development plan for the project in order for it to move forward.
