KARE 11: Forest Lake church hopes to add tiny homes to house homeless veterans

Most churches take pride in welcoming all who visit, but Faith Lutheran Church in Forest Lake hopes rolling out the welcome mat will eventually include rolling mobile tiny homes into their parking lot.

The church, in partnership with Settled, a nonprofit which works to end homelessness, wants to place 12 tiny homes on the Faith Lutheran property to house homeless veterans in Washington County.

“The topic of homelessness is something that’s been a part of our congregation for a long time,” said Faith Lutheran Church Senior Pastor John Klawiter.
