Madhousers, Inc. Talk About Their Work
Tuesday July 22, 2014 6-8 pm
Tracy Woodard and Nick Hess from Madhousers, Inc. will talk about modular shelter as a stepping stone between living on the streets and getting back into a stable home environment.
Mad Housers, Inc. is a non-profit corporation based in Atlanta, Georgia and engaged in charitable work, research and education. The Mad Housers are perhaps best known for a hands-on, pragmatic approach to providing shelter to homeless people, in particular through the design, construction and provision of small (6′x8′x10′). These shelters, though not meant as permanent housing, provide “privacy, security, protection from the elements, and stability,” all of which the organization believes are vital to helping people escape homelessness.
Lecture begins at 6:30 and is approx 35-40 min long. Q+ A will follow. Please register in advance by clicking here.
