Disaster Mitigation - Rescues - Emergency Housing

Hands Over Homes is a nonprofit disaster relief that benefits veterans and the elderly. We are a community that comes together to help those who have served our country and ensure no one is left behind during times of disaster. We touch the lives of our veterans and the elderly by providing them with the resources they need to rebuild their homes and lives. We are committed to providing disaster relief to those who need it most, and we need your help to ensure no one is left behind. Please join us in our mission to provide disaster relief to veterans and the elderly. Together, we can make a difference.

Our mission is the preservation of veterans and elderly life that reside in nursing homes before, during, and after disasters. Hands Over homes is a 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit.

My name is John Allison, and I am the founder of Hands Over Homes. My background is in rebuilding communities, completing repairs, and restorations. I’ve been a builder of many things my whole life but have always been focused on rebuilding places destroyed by disasters. After bearing witness to several hurricanes and their path of destruction that was left behind, the harsh reality of its toll hit home for me. During disasters, our veterans and the elderly endure mistreatment at the hands of those who care for them.

Due to non-working generators and lack of necessities, many residents suffered heat strokes that resulted in death.

HOH’s Emergency Housing Initiative offers a lifeline after unforeseen disasters, acting as a bridge between crisis and stability. We believe providing emergency housing after a disaster with modified storage containers can be a powerful tool for saving and restoring lives. These pop-up-style structures can be assembled quickly for housing, medical, and mechanic stations. This innovation will help Hands Over Homes stand out in emergency rescue and relief efforts as an effective partner of first responders and relief organizations.

1. Veteran and elderly Rescue from disasters. Specifically, these that reside in nursing homes

2. Emergency housing. - We convert containers to mobile disaster housing that takes care of up to 100 people.
