Shelter Unlimited is a brand new organization. For the bulk of 2015 we are focusing primarily on fundraising and seeking our IRS 501(C)(3) accreditation so that we can focus on projects full time next year. If you are interested in volunteering opportunities, or have any suggestions, please feel free to contact us.
The two programs we are currently working on getting off the ground are below:
- Fund and host educational programs and MOOCs (Massive Open Online Classes) on green building and permaculture design
- Building up a fleet of travel trailers, to use for ‘hand up’ housing, volunteer quarters for builds and post-disaster shelter
For more deatails on what we are currently working on, please see the ‘Current Program Priorities‘ page.
Our future plans include:
- Build demonstration housing to show what can be built with real green building
- Build homes for those who need them
- Help with the renovation and preservation of existing housing-stock
- Provide home-financing education to those facing financial hardship
- Help transition from ‘disaster shelter’ to permanent green housing via education and funding of green building programs
