Students at an area college are helping out a non-profit organization providing shelter to those in need.

The welding class at CVTC volunteered to build a trailer for Hope Village tiny housing alternatives. The students spent eight weeks making a trailer for the tiny home.

Tiny homes for the homeless have been helping those who need shelter in Chippewa County for close to a year now. The homes are one hundred square feet and one organizer says there's a need for them in the Chippewa Valley.

"There is a need out there in our community for temporary shelter like these for people who are in transition until we can get them into a place where they can find permanent housing and that can sometimes take a while," Arlan Bergquist , a Hope Village board member, said to WEAU 13 News on Monday.

Bergquist says he hopes eight homes will be completed by the end of the summer.
