Could the MicroPad solve Sacramento's homelessness crisis?

Donna Gallup, the president and CEO of the nonprofit development agency American Family Housing, which serves Southern California, said the choice to invest in a high-design project was deliberate.
"We knew this was going to be the first project of its kind in the country, and we wanted to set the bar high so that in the future, when people are replicating modular housing [they will] take into account that these are supposed to be assets to our communities and not detract from the value of our neighborhoods," she says. To work this soul-redeeming magic, Gallup's organization enlisted a volunteer interior designer to make each space both beautiful and functional. "I've found that when you give homeless people a beautiful place to live, and you treat them with the respect and care that they deserve," she says, "they'll then treat the housing and the other people in the community with that same respect and care." The 7th and H development, which enhances the fabric of its downtown Sacramento neighborhood, serves as a shining example of permanent supportive housing.

Ever since the project-which took six months to complete-opened in March, she has been welcoming a steady stream of civic leaders and developers from other cities who want to replicate it. The first such clone, utilizing the same prefab manufacturer, broke ground in April in Vacaville on 39 units of supportive housing for veterans. The Community Development Partners project has a six-month timeline. At $21 million, the cost per unit is similar to that of conventional construction, but Gallup says she expects it to be lower for future projects as the production process becomes more efficient. She also points out that the installation of the units, once they're trucked in, takes all of about 45 minutes. "The big question is how we get the manufacturing to scale," Gallup says. "I'm working on it.

Affordable Prefab Homes for the Homeless are Trending

"We are not putting people in shipping containers," American Family Housing CEO Donna Gallup told the LA Times.
"We are putting them in housing - very energy-efficient, very structurally strong, very beautiful multifamily housing."

The $6.3-million project, due to open by mid-February, will be the state's first multifamily housing made from shipping containers, said Donna Gallup, president and chief executive of American Family Housing, an Orange County homeless services and housing organization.
The new apartments stand on a parcel owned by American Family Housing adjacent to its Midway City headquarters. In an emotional address, Gallup told the audience gathered under a circus-style tent in the American Family Housing parking lot that the breakneck construction schedule had brought on yelling, tears and meltdowns but ultimately proved a concept for quickly developing high-quality, durable and energy-efficient homeless housing on a short timeline.
