Senior Builds Tiny House for Homeless in Seattle

Senior Jarred Flowers used his Eagle Scout Award Project to fuel his desire to directly impact someone in his community by building a tiny house with the support of the Low Income Housing Institute.

"I have to do something that benefits my community and I wanted it to have a lasting impact on somebody’s life and wanted to appeal to the homelessness project in Seattle,” he said. 

Jarred raised $2,300 for the project and purchased the materials needed over the summer. With the help of 25 people, it took 250 hours to complete the house over the course of a month. The day before he turned 18 on October 1, Jarred completed the house.
