At Muse Realty, we’re always on the lookout for unique initiatives and organizations that give back to communities and encourage us to do good in the world.

Here is what we have been inspired by lately:

Tiny Homes Detroit

Home ownership is a major goal in many people’s lives; owning a home can provide a sense of pride, accomplishment, and security. But for low-income workers, it doesn’t always feel attainable – that’s where Tiny Homes Detroit comes in.

After seeing a news story about this project, we felt an instant connection. Our interest in tiny homes lead us to learn more about the organization that we now proudly support.

Cass Community Social Services took the concept of tiny homes and made it purposeful, enabling low-income individuals to own homes. This is one of those very simple ideas that makes a huge difference. Executive Director of CCSS, Reverend Faith Fowler, also published a book explaining how they did it to help other communities to create their own tiny home communities.
