A new housing project in Abilene aims to help patients receiving regular outpatient treatments who live too far away to drive back and forth from home to the hospital. The non-profit building the community on Hickory Street, just north of Hendrick Health System, offers extended stays in tiny houses to patients free-of-charge.  KACU’s Haley Remenar took a tour of Houses for Healing’s first cottage, which may serve as a model for communities around Texas and the nation.
