Chippewa Falls-based nonprofit that has built tiny houses to provide temporary housing for unsheltered people is launching a study to determine the community’s capacity for a new fundraising effort. Hope Village is beginning this initiative with a survey to gather public input on its fundraising strategy. Founded in 2016, Hope Village currently provides shelter with nine tiny homes. It’s now considering launching a campaign to raise $3.4 million to expand its village to create five reduced-rent duplexes, three reduced-rent six-plexes, a playground and pavilion, and a resale store that would serve village residents and the public. To take the survey, which is available through Oct. 31, and to learn more about Hope Village, visit hopevillagechippewafalls.org.
