On a nondescript street in downtown Brunswick, a few blocks from the Mary Ross Riverfront Park, sits the Golden Isles Veterans Village. As yet unoccupied, the plan is slowly coming together for 30 tiny homes and a community center for homeless veterans. Billed as a “transitional community to help homeless veterans “get back on their feet” again”, the village will be a place for residents, both for housing and to also receive physical and mental health services, education and job training.

Thanks to $2.1 million from the Fiscal Year 2024 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, the community has just made a great leap in getting ready. The funding was part of the appropriations request from U.S. Rep. Buddy Carter, R-GA, and will provide interior plumbing fixtures, fittings, appliances, heat/ac systems, furniture, bedding, and housewares for the 30 tiny homes that are already onsite.
