IADDIC produces the first rigid, permanent shelters for mass distribution to help with disaster relief and humanitarian social housing
You are weather-beaten, tired and frayed. Due to situations beyond your control you have lost everything. Maybe there was a fire, flood, hurricane, or you simply lost your job. The roof and walls of your home have now been replaced by either a shredded tarp, the boards of a shack, a tent ripped apart by the wind, or maybe you have no protection at all. In any case, there is no relief from the noise and clutter of the streets – no protection from the elements or from the people who call themselves your neighbors. Having a protective shelter is a basic human need denied to 1 out of 5 people in the global population. 1.8 billion people in the world do not have adequate, livable shelters – 500 million of those are homeless. Even in America, the richest nation in the world, there are 670,000 people homeless on any given night.
“Every place on earth has a housing problem from Haiti, Mexico, Ecuador, Pakistan, India, and Africa to America where you see homeless veterans in Ohio,” says Richard Grabowski, CEO of IADDIC Shelters. “There are billions of people around the world living in abject poverty. We as a society, as a global community, have yet to find the way to adequately shelter this overwhelming volume.”
Grabowski and his company IADDIC Shelters have discovered the “need to shelter” and have dedicated themselves to producing an innovative solution to this global housing crisis. IADDIC has spent the last 5 years perfecting the first rigid, permanent shelters for mass production. With the final model completed and the resources developed for mass circulation, these shelters are ready to start rebuilding permanent communities that will revitalize areas devastated by disasters and poverty.
“There are two specific needs filled by IADDIC Shelters that did not previously exist in the marketplace: shelters for disaster relief and humanitarian social housing,” says Grabowski, “There was a need to shelter that was not being met and I think we now bring to the table a long-lasting affordable shelter that can be built in overwhelming numbers in a couple of hours.”
