Los Angeles residents spend an average of 47% of their income on rent—the highest percentage in the nation. ThriveLA's pilot project will cost less than $240 a month.
At the heart of our solution is a simple idea: People don’t need large houses; they need a clean, safe place to sleep and store their belongings.
ThriveLA's Founder Perry Goldberg has purchased inexpensive, habitable land in northern Los Angeles County where we are planning a tiny house community.
Living "tiny" has multiple benefits:
Ultra-affordable – less than $240 per month so that even someone working for minimum wage isn't rent-burdened nor reliant on government subsidies.
Easy to build – efficient construction using 1/10th the building materials saves time, money, and the environment.
Stylish – airy and comfortable, incorporating innovative space-saving elements that include a fully-functional kitchen and bathroom/shower
Safe – earthquake safe, fire-resistant construction that exceeds building codes
Living tiny allows residents to accumulate savings, provides peace of mind, and eliminates the stress of living paycheck-to-paycheck.
ThriveLA is currently experimenting with different types of housing. Below are some examples of tiny homes that ThriveLA is considering for our pilot community LA County.
