A Tiny Home for Good, Lepa Jones of Mothers Against Gun Violence to Receive 2019 Rubenstein Social Justice Awards- syracuse university

Presented for more than 30 years, the Rubenstein Social Justice Award is given in honor of the late professor Dan Rubenstein, a former faculty member in the School of Social Work and his late wife, Mary Lou, a former school social worker. Recipients of this award are role models whose courage and strength inspire others to stand up—and step up—to advocate and be a voice in the Syracuse community. The values of social justice are integral to their daily lives. The work of honorees each year, by their individual and collective examples, exemplify the true spirit of the Rubenstein Social Justice Award.

A Tiny Home for Good builds affordable housing for those facing homelessness- The DAILY ORANGE

Growing up in Marcellus, Dale Spicer worked sun-up until nearly midnight to support his family. His work ethic has persevered throughout his life, even after months of rehabilitation following the removal of a tumor.

Last year, Spicer, a United States Army Veteran, helped construct his new home on Bellevue Avenue through A Tiny Home for Good, a local nonprofit that builds affordable housing for individuals facing homelessness. Spicer said he didn’t mind the long workdays — he’s quick to offer a helping hand.

A Tiny Home for Good: Four new houses are ready for homeless Syracuse veterans- syracuse.com

Six months ago, an empty dirt lot sat untouched on the South Side of Syracuse.

Now, the space had been turned into four brand new homes, ready to welcome homeless veterans next week.

Andrew Lunetta, the founder of the nonprofit A Tiny Home for Good, wanted to create safe, affordable and permanent housing for people who can't find living stability. Since the start of his organization in 2015, Lunetta and his team have built nine homes, four of which were unveiled last month.

To a growing number of people, tiny homes represent an alternative path to home ownership, eliminating the need for onerous mortgages. That is especially true for many marginalized people experiencing homelessness, for whom tiny homes can also mean a second chance at life -- through access to stable, affordable housing or even outright home ownership.

Meet Andrew Lunetta, the 26-year-old dedicated to helping Syracuse's homeless- syracuse.com

A group of Le Moyne College students spent 10 days on the Caribbean Island of Dominica in 2009 as part of a class focused on service. Along with housing one of the world's poorest economies, the island is beautiful, covered with volcanoes, mountains and rain forests.

Between work and classroom time, students were free to do what they wished, a reward for fundraising and hard work.

Andrew Lunetta, then a college sophomore, did what came most naturally to him.
