First Baptist Church in Spartanburg, South Carolina, plans to transform land on the city's Northside into transitional housing for single, homeless women. "They, in our opinion, are the most easily victimized of the population on the street," said Steve Wise, minister of the church.
The goal is to build 20 tiny homes. The church says each woman in the program would get her own. City Councilwoman Erica Brown represents the Northside. She says, "It's kind of important for us to think outside the box. I think this project will give us an idea and a sense of how successful it can possibly be, and hopefully we'll see more projects like this around our community."
