Forward Paths Foundation announces the postponement of the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the “Cottages On Grove” tiny home village, originally scheduled for May 17. The new date for the event is Wednesday, June 7, at 10 AM. The ceremony will take place at the site adjacent to the First United Methodist Church of Eustis, located at 600 S Grove St, Eustis, FL. Attendees are welcome to park at the church.

“There was a delay because of transformers being on back order,” Denise Burry, Executive Director of Forward Paths, says.

Anticipation is growing to complete this journey, which will provide stable and supportive housing for at-risk youth aging out of foster care. The “Cottages On Grove” project, is a collaboration between Forward Paths Foundation and HomeAid Orlando.

“These are going to be a launching point for them to learn how to live independently,” Forward Paths President Jacob Bonynge said. “Just enough space for them to learn how to keep a home and live independently.”

The tiny home village, located on a two-acre site donated by the First United Methodist Church of Eustis, consists of multiple 610 sq. ft. cottages, each featuring two bedrooms and one bathroom. These homes are designed not only to provide safe housing but also to empower residents to develop crucial life skills and achieve self-sufficiency.

Forward Paths Foundation continues to welcome community support in the form of donations for furniture and decor to furnish these new homes for incoming residents. For more information on how you can support, please visit forwardpaths.org.
