Group using tiny houses to help battle Detroit blight

Tiny houses are in high demand

By Alex Atwell - Photojournalist

DETROIT - A Detroit group is battling blight in the city with tiny houses.

Cass Community Social Services and many, many volunteers have come together to build 25 tiny houses at Monterey and Woodrow Wilson in Detroit.

The area has been hit by blight, and neighbors say they are welcoming the development with open arms.

The tiny houses are in high demand - so much so, that registration is closed due to overwhelming response.

Many of the houses will go to formerly homeless, senior citizens and students who have aged out of foster care.
