What is Eden Village?
The organization began as the “Gathering Tree,” a safe hangout spot open in the evenings for the homeless to play games, get coffee, and use the computers. Eventually, the Gathering Tree grew into a tiny home community known as Eden Village in 2018.
Eden Village offers housing for homeless and disabled individuals in Springfield, MO. This community is made up of tiny homes, a community center, and a garden. A full kitchen, laundry room, computers, offices, and book and DVD library fill the shared community center for all to use. In addition to providing these tangible resources, Eden Village supports residents with an opportunity to gain service skills. They may work in the community garden, woodworking shop, and neighborhood store.
