First Look Inside St. Louis' "Hooverville-Style" Tiny Home Village For Homeless 

A modern-day "Hooverville" has been constructed in St. Louis, Missouri, consists of dozens of people who have been left behind in the "K-shaped" recovery.

The tiny house village, a temporary housing program erected by the city, is located off Jefferson Avenue just north of downtown. The shanty village built during the pandemic depression is for the homeless.

The village was constructed with about $600k from the federal CARES Act and has a 29-month lease on the property.

"There are single and double homes. They have heating and AC, plus a bed and desk. The property offers showers, restrooms, laundry, three meals a day and 24-hour access to caseworkers. The heat is the biggest thing for many of the residents as the temperatures drop," said local news KMOV.
