Cass Community celebrates the groundbreaking of the next FIVE Tiny Homes

DETROIT - The General Motors Foundation (GMF) is funding the Cass Community Social Services Women in Motion (WIM) program. The GMF partnership and support for WIM will allow women the opportunity for upward economic mobility through affordable, supportive housing.

Tiny Homes will consist of building 25 tiny houses dedicated for low-income households; the WIM program is focused on three of the 25 homes.

GM funding will provide support to three low-income women who are either formerly homeless, seniors, or students who have aged out of foster care. This innovative "rent-to-own" model has the goal of helping women escape poverty with homeownership. Initially, the women will rent their homes for seven years.

At GM, one of our main focus areas is to create sustainable solutions that improve the communities in which we live and work and nowhere is that more true than here in our headquarters city of Detroit.

GM is a proud partner in helping Detroit in its unprecedented renaissance by supporting organizations that help improve education, promote workforce development, stabilize neighborhoods, and attract and retain residents, businesses and visitors to the city.
