Letter: Hope Village doesn’t add up

By Larry Jacobson, Vancouver

From the Hope Village website: “Hope Village is a tiny home village that houses roughly 25-30 men and women in our community.”

With an annual budget of $766,457, my calculation of the monthly cost per individual of this housing is $2,129 per month.

This is for double occupancy for a “tiny home.” Does this make sense?
