How one Jesuit grad is building Tiny Homes to end chronic homelessness

Tiny homes—you’ve probably heard of them. They’re littered all over Instagram and Pinterest, and HGTV has dedicated a show to hunting them.

But what you probably haven’t heard about is how they could be a solution to end chronic homelessness.

This week we talk to Andrew Lunetta, a graduate of LeMoyne University, who is the executive director of A Tiny Home for Good. Only 27, Andrew “builds and manages safe, affordable and dignified housing for individuals facing homelessness in Syracuse, New York.” How does he do it?

In Signs of the Times, we discuss the first U.S.-born priest to be beatified, funeral Mass-crashing and the controversy around N.F.L. players taking a knee.

This week we’re giving away print copies of the latest issue of America!

It’s a beautiful issue, chock full of great stories. The cover story on the Catholic Church in China is beautifully written and accompanies the documentary that we released this week. (Did I mention we have a documentary out on the Catholic Church in China? Here’s a link if you missed my previous pleas to watch it).
