Golden Isles Veterans’ Village
Members of the Golden Isles Veterans’ Village Initiative, LLC (GIVVI), hope to have the first five tiny homes completed in the community in Downtown Brunswick by July 31, 2021. The site, located at G Street, between MLK and Amherst, will eventually be home to 30 tiny dwellings, along with a community center and a hydroponic gardening center, according to Margaret Jacobs, chair of the GIVVI.
While living in the Village, veterans will not only have a place to call home, but will also receive any medical and mental health services and any training for jobs or other skills, like cooking, that they need. “We formed our LLC in 2019, and everyone was unanimous in supporting building the village in Downtown Brunswick,” Margaret said. The project is modeled after the Cove at Dundee community in Savannah. “We have the advantage of having all of their information and knowing what worked and didn’t work for them.”
