PHILIPPI, W.Va. (WBOY) — In just under a month’s time, a Barbour County organization has completed its first tiny house built to provide shelter for young men who have aged out of West Virginia’s foster care system.

New Vision Village cut the ribbon Monday afternoon on the first of 24 tiny houses installed on 7 acres near Philippi.

The group broke ground on the first home on March 22.

In addition to housing, the village also seeks to provide residents with a community of mentors, such as retired schoolteachers and military veterans.

The homes are manufactured near the village as part of New Vision’s job training program.
