Mini Mobile Homes for the Unhoused

$6,350 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 33 months
My name is Moksha Osgood and I am a tiny house builder who is working to build inovative affordable housing solutions for those who are living on the streets.  I have been working with a homeless outreach group called Box City SF, and we have recently received a Hands Up grant for $6000 for materials for 10 mini mobile homes for the homeless.  I have come up with 6 different designs all of witch cost $600 per structure.   I am fundraising for matching funds of $6000 for my Labor for these 10 structures.   Each unit takes me about 30 hours to build by myself.  I will be facilitating voluteer work days to help expidite production, and build skills and community among those who are living on and off the street.  I hope to raise $600  per unit for my labor in building and the managing of the building of these structures. 

These structures will  be built on wheels, which will allow them to be easily moved around the Streets of San Francisco to locations that are appropriate for temporary emergency shelters.  I have fronted the funds for one of the structures thus far, and I will continue to build as more funds become available. 

Illustrating inovative ways in which we can help people meet their basic needs, in a way that is aesthetically pleasing, is key component to creating solutions to a variety social, economic and environmental problems that we face today.   This is a form of practical art that I wish to offer to those who are in need, and I would be most grateful for your support.

The 5th structure is on the street. Dustin and his partner Sami are ecstatic about there new home. The other good news is that I have reached my goal on my go fund me campaign. I want thank all of you who supported this project. Hopefully this project will encourage a conversation about new ways that we can provide for people's basic needs in an affordable manner. I have a feeling that this is just the beginning of this work, and I really appreciate all of you who have financial supported this seed venture.

Hello All

I have completed my fourth mini mobile home. This one is called the Jiu-Jitsu. My Friend Rick has moved in and in his words he has said, "I am more than thrilled." I have been held up by a pretty bad cold for the last 5 days or so, but hopefully I will be coming out the other side soon and will be getting back on it.

Fantastic work. I walked past a lot of tents and homeless people in Brighton today wondering what help could be provided.
