A village of 15 self-contained tiny homes for military veterans is providing hope for soldiers who have fallen on hard times. The 37-square-metre homes in Calgary come with a kitchen and a bathroom, and each one is named after a Canadian soldier who died in service. There is also counselling for mental health, employment training and help for veterans as they transition to permanent housing over a one-year period. Dirk Lemcke spent eight-and-a-half years in a combat regiment. He never expected to be homeless and says he wants to eventually have a normal life again.
