A homeless veteran and his family were given a home that is part of the tiny houses trend and is a way to fight homelessness in the U.S.

Tommy Weir and his family had been living in a homeless shelter, but now they have a place to call their own. They were the first to receive a new prefabricated home that was built from a steel container.

The home was created by Affordable Homes 4U, which mass produces steel and container-based homes as a way to house the homeless. It was started in Las Vegas and brought over to Los Angeles by Holmes Stoner Jr.

The affordable homes project hopes this move is just the beginning as one homeless veteran family has been taken off the streets. They said their mission is for everyone to enjoy the American dream of home ownership.
