Tiny house village must find new location after four years

When Bruce Gogel first moved into a tiny house village, he said he had the best night's sleep he'd had in years. He knew he was safe.

Before that, he had been using heroin and sleeping under bridges, overpasses -- wherever he could find.

He didn't know where he would get his next meal, where he would sleep each night or whether he would even wake up the next the morning. Every day was a struggle just to survive, he said.

Moving into that tiny house village saved his life, he said. He was able to get a door with a lock, and get some autonomy over his own life. He also found a community that cared for and supported him as he got clean and restored his sense of purpose and self.


But now, the tiny house village he lives in at 1419 22nd Ave. with 14 homes has to find a new location after the church sponsoring it -- the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd -- gave the residents a notice saying it was ending its arrangement.
