Scout’s Vision: Tiny Home for Homeless Veteran

As part of his pursuit of the Eagle Scout rank, Boy Scout Tim Maron led a two-year effort to build a tiny home for a homeless military veteran — a project realized with the help of Wells Fargo.

Step by step, teenager Tim Maron’s vision of home for a homeless military veteran has become reality in a resurgent, small-town neighborhood once infested with drugs and crime.

Today, that neighborhood is known for its clean streets and renovated homes, thanks to a local nonprofit, and most recently a modest tiny house project led by Maron, 17, a Boy Scout and budding young community leader in eastern Pennsylvania.

Adopted Siblings Make Big Impact on Family


The Beaton family has adopted three children from foster care: Halen, Hudson and Holly. They also have two biological children, Hailey and Hunter. After seeing his siblings arrive to his home with their belongings in trash bags, Hunter started a campaign to provide duffel bags for children entering or transitioning through the foster care system. #ItsWorthIt
