Pawtucket, RI, Students Help Buiild Tiny Home for Homeless Vets

"Once complete, a 40-foot environmentally friendly tiny home will be moved from Pawtucket to the Dare to Dream Ranch in Foster, where it will provide shelter for homeless veterans working to learn skills to find jobs and permanent housing.

"Since school started last September, 30 students at Shea High School in Pawtucket, divided into two groups, have been working on turning a former metal shipping container into a suitable living space, along with staff at Providence-based Center for Dynamic Learning, a nonprofit that 'inspires youth to cultivate career readiness and workforce skills' through opportunities in STEAMM, or science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics and manufacturing."

A recent article in The Valley Breeze reported on this initiative at Charles E. Shea Senior High School in Pawtucket, RI.
