    MILWAUKEE (WDJT) — Milwaukee students began working on a tiny home for veterans Tuesday.

The Milwaukee Jewish Day School 7th and 8th grade students broke ground on a 128-square foot home on the grounds of the day school.

The project helps students learn skills like reading blueprints, developing a project budget and carpentry skills.

“We’re building tiny homes because there’s a lot of veterans who don’t have homes and don’t have jobs, and building these tiny houses will give us a lot of lifelong skills.”

The tiny home will be delivered to the Veterans Outreach site in Racine this spring.

Veterans Outreach houses homeless veterans looking to learn job skills and regain their independence.
