PROGRAM REQUIREMENT

Program candidates

The Shelter will accept candidates who are vetted and recommended by government shelters and faith-based organizations. Program participants must be substance-free with no mental health issues, commit to a lifestyle with God at the center of their spiritual life, and agree to progress in The Shelter’s vision of Christian growth.

The program is designed to help participants transition to their own rental housing within six to twelve months. At that time, they should be ready to find regular employment in a full-time job with medical benefits. Participants will learn vocational skills and be given occupational training in an organic farming initiative, and will have the opportunity to earn wages in exchange for their services.

About the domes

At the center of The Shelter’s housing assistance program is a revolutionary approach to cost-efficient temporary structures, made possible through the use of igloo-like portable shelters from Alaska-based company, Intershelter™.

The Intershelter™ portable shelter is made from high-tech aerospace composite material, is built to sustain hurricane strength winds and earthquakes, and is insulated to stay warm in extreme arctic sub-zero degree weather or cool in hot desert climates. A single structure’s pieces can fit in the back of a pick up truck, and can be assembled in a few hours by just three people.

A single dome structure costs about $12,000 and can house a family of five people. Additional structures can be attached to create multi-unit dwellings, and individual domes can be reconfigured into kitchens, bathrooms, and living spaces.
