Tiny Homes For Homeless Teens
The Piedmont Community Service Crew (PCSC) has for the past year been building a “Tiny House” that will house a homeless teen when completed. Now that the structure is built, the crew is going to paint a mural on the walls. Crew member Quelam Tran Perez, a junior at Head Royce, and one of 3 PCSC artists that contributed to our crew design competition, had the winning design, and she is now organizing the mural project with other crew artists. All PCSC members are invited to help out with painting the mural, so look for updates on Facebook! PCSC also plans to build a second tiny house this fall, helping Youth Spirit Artworks to realize their vision for 100 tiny houses for teen homelessness. This project, just one example of the range of our activities, was not only a fun and rewarding experience for the members, but it allows PCSC to make an impact on the really tough housing situation in the Bay Area.
Piedmont Community Service Crew (PCSC) is a youth-led co-ed Venturing crew that provides leadership skills to empower Bay Area teens through service in their community.
