When a family loses everything to a natural disaster, they find themselves uprooted from everything they have based their lives on. There has possibly also been life lost. Emergency housing needs to help families regain their balance and heal.

Community layout on different landforms





We will have 10 emergency housing warehouses strategically across the U.S to cover the areas hit most hard by natural disasters, so people can be housed as quickly as possible. The first thing to arrive and install will be the community hall inflatable structure, which will quickly give shelter to families. Later the inflatable will be used for evening dining, schooling for the 18-30 months for recovery, social services and various other meetings and gatherings. At the same time 40' containers prefitted with a cafeteria style kitchen, one for bathrooms, one for community laundry. All these containers will have solar and wind powered systems to generate electricity.

Amenities to help these families cope will be include other containers that open up and provide services found in most every town: a children’s playground, a gym, whose machines generate electricity when in use, a picnic/barbeque area and a wellness center.
