Friends of the Tiny Homes Village gathered at a 40-acre farm eight miles southwest of campus for an off-site event hosted by UNC School of Social Work. Guests toured 15 permanent homes built for an average of $50,000 a home. Each “tiny home” is 416-square-foot in size. The permanent residences were designed for people living with mental illnesses and veterans living on a fixed income.
With a 20-year record as the premier national organization for advancing the well-being of people who live and work in assisted living, the Center for Excellence in Assisted Living (CEAL) looks to build its expertise within its new home at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
