Nashville pastor raises money to build tiny homes for homeless

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A Nashville pastor who was trying to raise $50,000 to build a community of tiny homes for the homeless has exceeded his goal.

Pastor Jeff Obafemi Carr of Infinity Fellowship Interfaith Gathering Church said Thursday that he’s received over $51,000 in contributions. He started the effort on June 20.

The homes would be just 60 square feet each and would have no running water, but there would be a communal bathroom, kitchen and showers.

Carr lived in a model of the home until he reached his goal.

He plans to use the money he’s raised to build seven more homes. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
