Our Mission

To help meet immediate needs of people who live outdoors without safe and secure housing, while working to radically transform the paradigm of chronic homelessness.

Our Vision

To develop tiny home villages where people can live and help provide for their own needs.

The photo above shows a tiny home village under construction by Occupy Madison. With help from numerous community groups, Occupy Madison has built nine tiny houses, a day resource center, laundry facilities and a community gardening space in the village. The 96 square foot homes are made from reclaimed and recycled materials and include a bed, a toilet, propane heat and solar panels for electricity. Each building costs around $5,000 to build and the money was raised with private donations.

Walking With A Purpose Minnesota has helped serve the homeless who live in the wooded areas by walking to them and bringing them some of their basic necessities on a weekly basis. One step at a time we are making a difference.”
