Ontario City Council approves license for tiny homes to house homeless

ONTARIO – A plan to provide temporary housing for the homeless leaped ahead last week after the Ontario City Council approved a revised license agreement between Ontario, Community in Action and Origins Faith Community church.

In the past several weeks the three organizations developed a plan to buy and install tiny homes to help the city’s growing homeless population. The site for the tiny homes is between Northeast Third Avenue and Northeast Fourth Avenue off North Oregon Street.

The changes to the revised licenses were minor and centered primarily on designating Community in Action to insure the tiny house complex.

“It is a six-month license. That will give us time to do the project and do an evaluation. They (the city) are providing the land through the license,” said Barb Higinbotham, executive director of Community in Action.
