MUNCIE, Ind. – A community made up of tiny homes is beginning to take shape in Muncie to help homeless people get back on their feet.

Six of the pintsized homes were delivered to the project’s site at 318 West 8th Street Monday.

The 96 square feet homes were built in Indiana for about $2,600 each, according to Susie Kemp, the director of Bridges Community Services.

Kemp says the project will also include a community garden and a building with showers, restrooms and a kitchen.

Volunteer labor will be used to finish the project. Officials will begin taking applications on October 1 and they hope to start moving people in on November 1.

Depending on the success of the project, officials say they may build more homes in the future.

Contrary to word going around, the project will not house sex offenders.
