13 vets to move into tiny houses from the Veterans Community Project in KC
Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg will be joined by Mayor-elect Quinton Lucas and Jason Kander Wednesday morning on a tour of Kansas City’s tiny home community for veterans.
Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and Kander, are both veterans.
The organization constructed the 13-home village at 89th and Troost where veterans can live rent-free while receiving comprehensive assistance and work to find permanent housing.
In October, Kander withdrew from the Kansas City mayoral race to focus on his mental health.
Lucas was elected mayor last month.
Buttigieg is among more than 20 candidates seeking the Democratic nomination. The top 20 will take the stage July 30 and 31 for the second primary debate.
