DOVER, Del. (AP) - A group of advocates has set up a temporary camp consisting of small tents in Dover to promote an idea to build tiny houses for the homeless.

Delaware State News (https://bit.ly/2a8kJPh ) reports that advocates gathered at the corner of Division and State streets on Tuesday to raise awareness about the issue.

Victory Church pastor and advocate Aaron Appling says most people don’t realize how big of a problem homelessness is and hopes the demonstration makes people more aware.

The advocates hope officials approve a plan that would build 15 tiny houses for the homeless on Victory Church property. The houses would be 200 square feet and would feature a bed, toilet and kitchenette.
