Temporary Post-Disaster Housing Unit – Solid Steel Construction

Crisis Housing Solutions has completed the first model for our post-disater housing program. The unit is currently being featured in the Florida Housing Coalition’s Virtual Innovative Housing Showcase.

We invite you to check out a video of the completed unit!

This unit is just part of our efforts to bring shipping containers into the mainstream of meeting affordable housing challenges.

Already in development is “Arts On Broadway”, a project by partners, Crisis Housing Solutions (CHS) and Community Asset Preservation Corporation (CAPC). This 52-unit rental community will be the largest community developed in the US using repurposed shipping containers. We anticipate groundbreaking early next year.
