VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Organizers of a proposed village of tiny houses for homeless in Vancouver are scrambling to establish the village after a church that had agreed to host the homes pulled out of the project.

The Columbian reports (http://bit.ly/1lSQdLP ) that Safe Harbor Church of Nazarene had agreed to let the Council for the Homeless and its partners build a temporary, emergency village for 50 homeless people this winter in a field behind the church, but received threat of a lawsuit, causing them to back out.

Council for the Homeless Execute Director Andy Silver says he received news of the change of plans Wednesday.

The village will consist of 40 insulated garden sheds with windows and locking doors for women, adults with no children and elderly single men.
