‘Tiny Manufactured Homes’ Form Eden Village’s Planned Solution to Chronically Homeless, Videos and Analysis Peers Into Hope Aimed at Hand Up for Hopeless; plus MHVille REITs, Stocks Update


“Our mission is to fight homelessness with dignified living, getting the homeless off the streets and in a sustainable, supportive community environment benefiting themselves, the community, and the city’s economy.” So says the About Us page on the Kansas City, Kansas (KCK) Eden Village website. “Eden Village of Kansas City is a community model that builds tiny home communities for the chronically homeless.” In their prior promotional video below, the homes are described as 400 square manufactured tiny homes. The current news item video follows the first posted video.



KMBC News 9 says that with the arrival of the “first mini home KCK’s Eden Village” are a step toward what “organizers say there will be 23 mini homes and a community center.” Per ABC 9: “The community will feature mini homes similar to those at the Veterans Community Project on the Missouri side.

“We get to see them finally get a place to stay,” said Terry Claudell, president of Eden Village.”



QuoteMarksLeftSide“The chronically homeless are those who have been on the streets for 12 months or more,” Claudell said.

The first of 23 homes rolled into the village on Tuesday. Each home has 400 square feet, a living room, a kitchen, a bedroom, and a full bath.

“There’s over 2,000 folks without homes right now in the Kansas City general area,” Claudell said.

The location just off Metropolitan Avenue is the site of a former mobile home park. Claudell said when completed, there will be 23 mini-homes and a community center. Residents will be able to live there for about $300 a month.

“We say it’s a hand up instead of a handout,” Claudell said.

He said they hope to have the park open by May. Right now, nine of the 23 homes have already been purchased through donations. He said it’s just a matter of working with the city on all the details.

“We can make a difference. We can help these folks,” Claudell said.

He said that three years ago, when they started the project, the homes were about $35,000 each to buy. Now with inflation, they are almost $60,000.

“It’s all by donation,” Claudell said.” The full ABC 9 report, including a video transcript, is found at this link here.  The video below is from a previous news report on an Eden Village that opened in Springfield, MO.



Unpacking and Analysis of Report with More MHProNews Information, Insights and Analysis

It can and should be uplifting to know that some people volunteer their time, talents, and treasure in order to reach out to those who are disadvantaged. That noted, stories like this one from KCK are playing out in different ways in cities and towns across America, although not always with tiny houses, as MHProNews/MHLivingNews has periodically highlighted for years. The homeless are often pressed into that way of life by circumstances that they had limited or no control over. The causes are numerous, as the sampling of linked items below reflects.




MillionsViewsTale22YearOldTikTokUserAaliyahHomelessFullTimeHomeDepotEmployeeLivingInCarWhyAaliyahsStoryMattersAffordableHousingManufactured HomesplusMHMarketsMHProNews



“Family Jewels,” MHVille Insider Tips, “Info Wars” and Omaha, Knoxville, California, Seattle and Arlington, and DC Connections

There are more examples of reports on MHProNews and our sister MHLivingNews platforms that deal with the issue of homelessness. But let these linked ones be sufficient for now. Because those examples already dwarf what could be found on so-called rival MHVille trade media/blogger sites, which can’t, won’t, or don’t cover the issues and meaning of topics that upset the narrative that the ‘powers that be’ carefully craft.



For a more specific example of this issue, in – Why is Seattle Dying? – one of the root causes of homelessness has been identified as the lack of affordable housing. Put differently and from the vantagepoint of affordable factory-built housing, because many of these same cities have long barred or made difficult the placement of new HUD Code manufactured homes, over time one of the consequences of that NIMBYite behavior is that some people will become homeless.

If robust manufactured home placements weren’t so difficult in cities and towns across America, would these KCK or Springfield “Eden Village” type projects be needed at all?

According to the World Population Review, in 2022: “The current population of Kansas City, Kansas is 158,771.” The transcript of the ABC 9 KMBC News item above says: “There’s over 2000 folks without homes, right now in the Kansas City general area.” In 2021, “Right now there are nearly 1733 people in Kansas City experiencing homelessness and 386 are under the age of 18,” per Project Homelessness Connect for KC. Presuming the accuracy of about 2000 homeless out of 158,711 people living in KCK, that equates to .0126 (1.26 percent) of the population of that Midwestern American city. The New York Times said on 7.15.2022 that “America’s Homelessness Crisis Is Getting Worse.”

So, with the highest federal spending since World War II in PINO Biden’s America, the problem of homelessness is growing.

While the estimates on the numbers of homeless is far from certain, and as the examples shown herein make clear that the various sources nor do all agree on the percentage or numbers of the homeless, Policy Advice puts the figure at .2%. Neighbor’s January 2022 report that used 2020 homelessness data said there are some “580,466 [homeless] people, around 18 of every 10,000 people in the United States.” The New York Times and others have said since then that the numbers are rising, not falling.

So, while it is noble to create ‘a village’ for a few dozen homeless people, it is apparently more of a token approach that fails to address the root causes. Doing the math, these charitable or governmental ‘solutions’ have not yet demonstrated any ability to reduce or eliminate the growing numbers of the homeless.


Dedicated and attentive MHProNews/MHLivingNews readers may recall that just days ago survey data revealed, and USA Today reported, that many younger Americans are feeling hopeless about becoming a homeowner. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) research supported the notion that despite the hoopla, black homeownership is down under Biden and Democratic rule.


Recall too that the Modular Home Builders Association’s (MHBA) Tom Hardiman accused the Biden regime of “political payoffs” that postured and promised but would not perform as advertised. Was Hardiman just lucky in that statement? Or did he rather review the evidence and come to that conclusion based on his own analysis of the facts?



Considering the emerging facts and evidence that dispel Bidenland-Democratic claims on behalf of its corporate backers, it any wonder that consumers are being described as having “fears for the future” in 2022? With economic decline, record high housing costs, rising interest rates, fuel, food and other examples of inflation rising, the corporate and billionaire backers of the Democratic Party’s agenda are asking Americans to ignore the evidence and to buy instead their often-repeated talking points which resemble gaslighting and propaganda.


Consumers ‘Fears for the Future’-Mortgage Payments Surge Since 2021, Buyers Get Priced Out–Conventional Housing Woes are Manufactured Home Pro Opportunities; plus MHVille REITs, Stocks Update

The Google search below reveals numerous articles, often from left-leaning news (i.e.: typically pro-Democratic sources) that illustrate that billionaires and their corporate interests have captured the contemporary Democratic Party. That’s not a partisan statement, it is the evidence that also supported the notion from some years ago that similar forces dominated “establishment” Republicans.  Indeed, the Republican or “Grand Old Party” (GOP) is still witnessing a power struggle as America First/MAGA Republicans seek to wrestle control of that party away from Establishment (i.e. corporate and their top bosses) control.

There are RINOs just as there are DINOs. The billionaire class and their corporate interests wield enormous influence over U.S. politics. Something similar is often true in other nations too. Numbers have said for years that there is a two-tiered justice system in America, citizens must ponder the meaning of the Trump property raid by the FBI as a possible example of an excessive show of force that have been displayed against other Trump supporters in recent years, often with little or no result in terms of convictions for a serious crime.

The Biden Housing Plan

Despite promises to manufactured housing and the housing market in general, the Biden plan for housing is proving to be a dud that is long on talk but short on positive action. More to the point, CNN recently reported that first time homebuying has plunged to a record low.

Despite Biden Housing Promises, CNN, NAR Say 1st Time Homebuyers Fall to ‘All Time Low’ – MHI Input – Unpacking Info for MHVille Advocates & Pros; plus Sunday MHProNews Weekly MH Reports Recap

Note that the NYTimes, CNN, and the USA Today are all rated as left-leaning, which are generally more favorable toward Biden-Democratic policies and politics.


Understanding media bias is useful to sifting through possibly hidden agendas.


So, if those are the ‘facts’ per pro-Democratic sources, what might be the complete reality if the politics and fluff are stripped out of their respective data claims?

What It Means

But perhaps as or more important is what this ought to mean for manufactured housing professionals and all affordable housing advocates of good will (as opposed to merely posturing ones). When the free market solution that manufactured housing offers is artificially suppressed, obviously the overall cost of housing will tend to rise, even apart from inflation. The public policy solutions – often long on promises – have been short on delivery for 50 years. Yes, for emphasis, there have been 5 decades of promises, promises by establishment Republicans as well as establishment Democrats, per HUD’s own Policy Development and Research (HUD PD&R) analysis by Regina Gray and Pamela Blumenthal.


While all this is occurring, the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) keeps talking as if things are still ‘business as usual.’ That’s obviously NOT the case. MHI is increasingly being revealed as a tool of consolidators, rather than an advocate for “all segments” of the manufactured housing industry as they have long claimed. Since when has manufactured home residents been involved in a meaningful way at MHI? Aren’t they a segment of the industry? One should harken back to what prior MHI president and CEO, Chris Stinebert said in his exit message, quoted below.



For over 5 years, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) has been calling on members of the manufactured home industry to forge a new post-production trade group that they could collaborate with to battle the forces that are keeping manufactured housing at a record low ebb through much of the 21st century. No matter how much distraction, disinformation, slurs, or subtle paltering/posturing occurs on behalf of leftist billionaires-corporate-dominated Democratic interests in or beyond MHVille, the facts can and do emerge that debunk their narrative.


More recently, without dropping the call for a new post-production trade group to supplant MHI, MHARR has pointedly called on MHI to forge a legal effort to stop what has been described as a destructive, pending DOE energy rule for manufactured housing.

MHI Owes the Manufactured Home Industry an Explanation and a Lawsuit – the Need to Stop Destructive Energy Regulations of Manufactured Housing

MHARR has also called on MHI to litigate to get HUD “enhanced preemption” authority for manufactured housing enforced. Tiny home advocates are suing localities to get their rights enforced. Why not MHI?


A decade has elapsed since MHProNews asked Tim Williams/21st Mortgage Corporation during an MHI meeting why the association was using litigation to press the industry’s rights under the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000 and that “enhanced preemption” language? Williams smiled as he began to respond to that question by saying that someday litigation may be necessary. But MHI leaders had other steps they wanted to try first. Isn’t a decade of trying alternatives more than long enough? Isn’t 22 years since the enactment of the MHIA and enhanced preemption long enough? Is MHProNews/MHLivingNews the only manufactured housing industry focused trade media seeking to hold Williams, 21st – a Berkshire Hathaway owned brand – and MHI accountable for dismal performance and ignoring the obvious solutions during the 21st century?

Homeless is not an accident. While a relatively small number of citizens may ‘want’ to be homeless, most are arguably homeless because there is insufficient affordable housing.


Clayton Homes or other MHI members may occasionally donate a home to ‘fight homelessness,’ but wouldn’t it be more effective if Clayton, 21st, and MHI donated the legal resources needed to press for an enforcement of the good laws that already exist at the federal level that might “unleash” manufactured housing to potentially record sales numbers?

After former MHI President and CEO Richard “Dick” Jennison was pressed by MHProNews directly and through Williams/21st, Jennison publicly proclaimed that manufactured housing could achieve 500,000 new home sales annually. That’s entirely possible, and may be too low an estimate, given the millions of housing units needed in the nation at this moment.

Put differently, when these various researched reports are considered as puzzle pieces and those pieces are examined in the light of the bigger picture they create, they frame a striking case for the harm caused in society when affordable manufactured homes are artificially limited by market manipulators of various types.

Investors in publicly traded firms in manufactured housing are often arguably being short changed. Why? Because when firms like Clayton Homes, Skyline Champion, Cavco Industries, Equity LifeStyle Properties (ELS), Sun Communities (SUI), Flagship Communities (TSX: MHC.U), or others are more focused on consolidation than a robust expansion of the industry’s ability to sell homes on par with conventional housing into cities and towns across America. That’s not a conspiracy theory, rather, it’s their publicly stated stance that is backed up by years of evidence.

Ironically, PINO Biden’s White House Fact Sheet on Competition makes a similar point, though they are talking in general, and not about manufactured housing specifically. Longterm and detail-minded MHProNews readers will recall that this platform predicted that this seemingly impressive set of claims and actions would go nowhere. Why? Because Biden and the Democratic Party were not going to bite the hand that feeds them politically, namely, the leftish billionaire and corporate class.




A recent lawsuit claims that the oligopoly form of monopolization is reducing wages in America by some 20 percent. So, this impacts almost everyone – smaller businesses, employees of firms, investors, affordable housing seekers, and the list goes on. Is it any wonder that homelessness is spreading in a manipulated economy?


These facts could become the talking points for:

  • Disruptive new entrants into manufactured housing that are willing to challenge the status quo and flip the script of the moat-builders against them in a profitable fashion.
  • A new trade group that could be flexing its muscles in tandem with MHARR to sideline MHI, who is essentially acting as a PR operation that benefits consolidators without doing much of what they formally claim.
  • Investors who are true contrarians, who recognize that the dominating brands in MHVille are arguably failing in their fiduciary responsibilities, and that the real need is to back the expansion of competing existing firms and/or create new ones that restore the more robust days of manufactured housing.

All road may or may not lead to Rome, as the old proverb goes. But the harms done to society by consolidation and the oligopoly form of monopolization are evident to those who take the time to understand how the puzzle pieces fit.





Ironically, Skyline Champion’s own investor pitch-deck provides ample evidence for manufactured housing industry underperformance. That same pitch-deck further provides evidence that Mergers and Acquisitions are a key part of their business model. What is there in such revelations that Birch and Williams miss? Bear in mind, that they are mere stand-ins who voluntarily raised their hands in defense of Berkshire and MHI firms like Skyline Champion.

Want to fight the root causes of poverty and homelessness?

If so, then someone must take up the fight against the modern form of monopolists. That’s what years of research and evidence reveals.

The laws that were enacted nearly 150 years ago to punish those who manipulate the system already exist. Market and political manipulators operate in ways designed to enrich themselves while routinely harming society. Properly engage in the potentially wildly profitable fight of that battle and someone can witness the rebirth of the American Dream from the current form of contemporary feudalism. That’s what so many of the facts point toward. ###
