Low-income families in Joplin now have more housing options thanks to micro-housing

JOPLIN, Mo. – The Joplin United Micro-Housing Partnership recently completed its goal of adding more low-income housing for residents of Joplin.

New 500-square feet tiny-duplexes are now available for low-income individuals trying to become independent.

The JUMHP says they started this program after noticing the rise in homelessness in the community.

“At Catholic Charities we have a total of 12 affordable housing units here in Joplin, said John Lunardini, Director of Social Enterprises. “These two [houses], within a week of actually posting, were rented. That shows that the need for affordable housing is there and that’s why this partnership wants to grow this program and create more of these throughout the community”

Catholic Charities says they also help families with rental and utility assistance.
