'Infinity Village' gives the homeless a place to call their own

Fraternity Building 'Tiny Home' Village for Homeless Vets

While throwing some spare change into someone's cup or passing on leftover food can be a kind gesture, it's a temporary patch on the ongoing epidemic of homelessness.

Like the brothers of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity in the video above, Reverend Jeff Carr of Nashville wanted to really do something meaningful to help the homeless in his community.



On June 16th, Carr created a GoFundMe page to help aid the costs to "Give the Homeless Real (Micro)Homes." Watch Infinity Village's campaign video here:



Two-and-a-half months later, the campaign has raised $65,007, over $15K more than their original $50k they had originally asked for. So far, 780 people have donated to create the "Infinity Village," and the volunteer team has been able to build six homes.





This L.A. man built a micro house for a homeless woman who had been sleeping on the street:
