This capstone explored the use of tiny homes as a means to mitigate homelessness and housing insecurity in the City of Seaside. The project researched homelessness in the nation, the state of California, Monterey County, and California State University Monterey Bay, with findings that demonstrate inequitable access to resources and prohibitive requirements for obtaining shelter. This capstone then researched tiny home villages as a means to provide inclusive and sustainable housing. The project recommends three tiny home villages: in Seaside East and Parker Flats for the homeless population of Seaside, and an eco-village on CSUMB’s campus for the 15% or more of students who face housing insecurity.
