At A Lee Dog Story, we are committed to creating quality, self-managed communities of cost-effective tiny homes for people experiencing homelessness, while engaging the public with stories of life on the streets and recovery through the power of art, film and storytelling.
Tiny Home Developments
At A Lee Dog Story, we believe that Tiny Home Developments are the solution to Memphis’ affordable housing crisis.
Although the rate of homelessness in Memphis has gone down by 40% in the last five years, there are still over 1,200 individuals and families without permanent, stable housing on any given night in our city and tens of thousands of additional families that are severely cost burdened and at risk of facing homelessness.
Tiny homes are the cheapest, most sustainable, and most ecologically friendly solution to creating permanent, affordable housing in various neighborhoods in Memphis.
Memphis Art Prints
At A Lee Dog Story, we believe that art is incredibly powerful and helps to connect and celebrate community, showcase values, and embrace the humanity of all people. In order to change the current paradigm on homelessness in Memphis and around the country, we will come together as a community to learn more about the humanity of those experiencing homelessness through a variety of artistic mediums.
A Lee Dog Story is collaborating with different artists from around the world to create a series of art prints inspired by our nonprofit organization. Exclusive, original and affordable art prints by nationally recognized artists will be released on our website, with 100% proceeds going to our 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit organization, A Lee Dog Story.
A Lee Dog Story Film
Through the form of a TV docuseries and with the help of a National Media Network, we aim to help raise national awareness of some of the causes and effects surrounding homelessness, helping create a new paradigm on poverty and homelessness.
By connecting with our audience, we hope our TV Series will push viewers to think more openly, and challenge themselves to see the world from a different viewpoint. We believe that by bringing the world together to share these stories of homelessness and a community uniting, it will help make us more tolerant of difference and of one another.
