Finding Home, Finding Purpose

Welcome to Do Good On Purpose

Welcome to Do Good On Purpose, where we believe everyone deserves a place to call home and a purpose to live for.

At Do Good On Purpose, we are dedicated to addressing homelessness through a unique and empowering approach.

Our program offers homeless individuals the opportunity to earn homeownership by completing a two-year volunteer service commitment.

Participants volunteer at least 21 hours per week with locally approved charity organizations, earning 'mortgage credits' that lead to the ownership of a tiny home.

This journey not only provides a secure place to live but also instills a sense of purpose and community.

Our tiny homes, manufactured by Permanent Party Homes, are placed in supportive villages located in urban areas.

These villages foster a sense of belonging and self-sufficiency, with communal gardens, a community center, and access to essential services.

We ensure every participant is supported through our dedicated project managers and on-site staff, helping them stay on track and achieve their goals.

Join us in our mission to create lasting change.

Together, we can transform lives and build stronger communities, one home and one purpose at a time.
