For many couples, living together in a 96-square-foot house would be a challenge. But for Chris Derrick and Betty Ybarra, it’s a Christmas miracle.
That’s because Derrick and Ybarra have spent the better part of a year braving Madison, Wisconsin’s often-harsh climate without a roof over their head.
They’ll spend this Christmas in their own home, thanks to more than 50 volunteers who spent the past year on an innovative and audacious plan to fight inequality in the state’s capital: build tiny homes for the homeless.
The group hopes to have ten tiny homes completed by the end of 2014, and are working on finding a place for them to stay, says WMTV.
