2019 Building the Future



This supports local students and vocational education in Southern Oregon. Students from local high schools came together to build 4 tiny homes for local youth needing transitional housing. 

Builders Association Southern Oregon partnered with Hearts with a Mission for a 3-day building competition. Teams were lead by local professional contractors; Tim Alvarez (Claudio Alvarez Construction & Restoration), Robb Mayer (Outlier Construction), Travis Snyder (Snyder Creek Development), and Matt Bryant (Riverdell Construction). Students learned basic construction skills while working with their team to assemble 4 tiny homes in just 3 days.
