Kiwanis Family Village
The Kiwanis Family Village is four functional tiny homes that can house families and individuals. The homes are sponsored by Kiwanis Club of Erie (2), Erie Insurance, and The Housing Authority of the City of Erie. Renewal by Andersen will be building the fifth one from the ground up during Thanksgiving week.
The goal of the Kiwanis Family Village is to provide family style temporary emergency housing units where nuclear families can remain together while utilizing the services provided by CSS in the Emergency Shelter. These families will have access to facilities for meals as well as caseworker services and all normal programming at the shelter. Units contain a small bathroom as well as room for two bunk beds and a desk or table.
Units are filled as part of our Emergency Shelter through coordinated entry. If you are experiencing homelessness and need shelter, please call 814-SHELTER to be connected to coordinated entry.
