Homes for Horoes - Kingston Veterans' Village
730 King St. W. (at Portsmouth Ave.)
Occupancy (est.):  February 2024
Homes For Heroes - Kingston Veterans' Village is envisioned to be a place of community, camaraderie, and celebration.  Once completed, it will consist of:
  • 20 tiny homes, each being 300 square feet in size
  • a resource center,
  • social service offices, 
  • community gardens, and
  • community recreation space.
All homes face inward to facilitate peer-to-peer support and be fully equipped with all the features of a larger home.  Counselling staff at the centre will design and implement individualized programs for each resident, providing the health resources, financial services, and training they will need for well-being and independence in the long term.
Partners in the Homes for Heroes Veterans' Village project broke ground in Kingston on April 14, 2023.
The tiny-home village is now slated to be complete by February 2024.

  • Homes For Heroes Foundation’s mission is to integrate all homeless military Veterans back into the community through the provision of housing and support services.
  • Developed to combat the growing crisis amongst Canada’s military Veterans facing homelessness, Homes for Heroes operates tiny home villages nationwide.
  • In 2019, the Foundation opened ATCO Veterans Village in Calgary, and in 2021 opened the ATCO Veterans’ Village in Edmonton.
  • While the Kingston Veterans’ Village is currently under construction, the Winnipeg Kinsmen Veterans’ Village is now in the final planning stages.
  • Twenty-four Veterans have graduated from the program and gone on to move into permanent housing and become mentors for others.
The Kingston Veterans’ Village is located on land donated by the Province of Ontario and is supported by $100,000 in donations from Rotarians in the Kingston-Frontenac Rotary Club and the Erle Allan Fund.
