For years, our model has been looked as a creative means to increase density - which helps get people into shelter fast in order to “buy time” to find income, permanent housing and roommates. Our floor plan naturally builds trust through transparency, and connects people through collisions to say “we are in this together”
PodShare for Social Good is a pending 501(c)3 to raise money to build a location that uses our custom pods in underutilized commercial buildings (where residential neighbors are further away) to communally house people who receive the services they need to get back on their feet.
Think of PodShare as a shoe. In the beginning it was used as a flip flop for travelers to see the city with, these last 3 years it has become a sneaker for comfortable housing, and soon it can be a boot to get through life’s harder points.
From drop-in centers,, safe parking, discounts, host home programs, soup kitchens - we can all help in some way.

PodShare for Social Good has the intention is to build one location as a template for more - that’s how we proved the concept out in 2012. This organization would service the most vulnerable of the already vulnerable homeless population: women, youth and veterans.
Is to identify a location, while simultaneously funding for it.
Is entitling the location, supporting the neighborhood, and sourcing affordable building materials for the TI
Is building the location, Habitat for Humanity style, and opening the doors with our service partners.
This three step process can take 6 months to 2 years depending on the location, so let’s get started!
