“The campaign that we built, under Patrick’s leadership, highlighted themes that emerged directly from the words and experiences of villagers of the previous tiny home village. Our constituency then responded to the message by launching their own fundraisers that would go towards our funding goals. Patrick’s work is thoughtful, creative, and crisp. He communicates messages clearly through multiple mediums in a way that connects with human beings.”
Cole Chandler, Program Director,
Colorado Village Collaborative
The Colorado Village Collaborative exists to initiate and invest in the development of resident-led tiny home villages to address the current housing crisis and produce housing that is affordable, community centric, environmentally friendly, resident-led and easy to build.
Worked with the Colorado Village Collaborative to produce a fundraising campaign to build Denver’s second tiny home village for women experiencing homelessness. The village is the second ever of it’s kind and positioned to expand the collaborative across the metro area.
