LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Houses for the homeless, built on a budget. The organization New Leaf Community makes small, affordable houses for people in need.

The goal is to give people experiencing homelessness in the Las Vegas area a safe and secure place out of the elements.

The organization says it can build these small homes in just a few hours for around $600 each.

Staff says they previously made 27 homes in a homeless encampment but ran into issues with officials and regulations.

"We're now putting them on trailers, getting them registered," said co-founder Robert Majors. "Making it more mobile so people can take their home with them if they have a vehicle."

"We're looking to buy land," he added.

The organization also helps by giving out food, clothes and resources.

All of this is done with the help of volunteers and donations.
