Malheur County woman finds hope for the future through tiny home project

Anne St. Peter talks about how the Ontario tiny home project has helped her get off the street and provide a new way forward for her life. (The Enterprise/Pat Caldwell).

ONTARIO – Anne St. Peter knows hard times.

She survived domestic abuse, fell into illegal narcotic use and ended up homeless.

Now, though, life may be looking up.

St. Peter believes she is on the long road back thanks to Ontario’s tiny home project.

 “I feel like this is my key for good things to happen,” St. Peter said last week as she stood in the doorway of her temporary shed-like home in Ontario.

As she talked, city crews hustled to finish installing ramps to the 16 tiny houses in a lot next to Origins Faith Community Church . . .
