A Closer Look

Compared to Traditional Housing Shelters

“Interim Supportive Housing” differs from traditional “shelters” in a number of ways.  Rather than a bunk bed in a group setting, everyone gets the dignity of their own private space–with a door that locks.  Most importantly, exceptional services agencies provide the wrap-around support necessary to help clients make positive steps forward: connecting them with mental and behavioral healthcare, employment and housing specialists, and a myriad of other critical resources.

An Overview

Why isn't solving the housing crisis easier?

Governments have annual operating budgets, not money for up-front investment. The DignityMoves Fund will buy the units and lease them to the city, county or nonprofit so that investors can be repaid over time

DignityMoves units are portable, so we can borrow land that is currently vacant waiting for a project to move forward. We partner with developers who have projects tied up in the entitlement process, then move on to a new site when they’re ready to break ground

We use prefabricated modular buildings which are a fraction of the cost of traditional construction: Under $50,000 per unit compared to $500,000 or more.

We will bring in people living within 2 miles of our site. With showers, security, and places to stay we will clean up the tents and ugliness that are already on the streets.

We can manufacture hundreds of rooms per month, and they can be inhabited almost immediately. With lower costs of production, this can be scaled quickly. It can be done! Content
