SadieShelter H&S, Inc, constructs cost-effective, locking, water- and fireproof homogeneous structures that will protect the most vulnerable victims of traumatic displacement from all types of exposure while remaining environmentally conscientious.

While our structures are perfectly suited for commercial applications, our primary objective remains focused on protecting vulnerable victims of traumatic displacement. Everyone deserves to be as safe as possible while enduring terror, confusion and loss.

Victims of traumatic displacement face treacherous dangers well beyond their initial catastrophic loss. The high occurrence of opportunistic, violent and often deadly assault, is disturbingly commonplace and perpetrated primarily against women and children. Victims of traumatic displacement face the immediately menacing threats of illness and death due to exposure while housed in standard crisis tent shelters.

SadieShelter H&S, Inc, structures are harmless to the environment, extremely sturdy, water- and fireproof shelters with a double-wall and drop-in floor design and an effective reinforced locking door that cost a fraction of current standard tent shelters. The pouring of insulation material, such as sand, gravel, soil or even paper, into the double-wall design provides structural strength and the moderation of interior temperature while subjected to extreme outside conditions.

SadieShelter structures require no tools for assembly and can be disassembled and re-used as often as desired. SadieShelter standard HomeKit structures range in size from 4'-14' square and 10' to 12' tall. SadieShelter structures will comfortably accommodate 2-12 people and link together to create even larger internal living space. These HomeKit structures endure in extreme constant external conditions for no less than 6 months and up to 2 years.

SadieShelter H&S, Inc, also offers an optional drop-in wall “Ballistic Insert” that provides an additional 4” insulation space. As seen on their Kickstarter campaign ( and project description, the additional protection of this “Ballistic Insert”, prevents the penetration of small gun-propelled projectiles and shrapnel.

SadieShelter H&S, Inc, has also launched an online funding campaign with the hosting company,"IndieGoGo" that will enable SadieShelter to expand the scope of their service project. The link is:

SadieShelter H&S, Inc, hopes to partner with large domestic and global aid agencies to replace treated canvas tent shelters currently distributed to victims of traumatic displacement. SadieShelter structures can be linked together to create a larger secure internal space and can be made permanent with the application of a stucco-like material.

According to the study by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre and the Norwegian Refugee Council, “Natural disasters forced 32.4 million people to flee last year (2013), with the overwhelming majority (98 percent) due to climate- and weather-related events. While most of the victims live in developing nations, 2012 also saw an increase in environmental refugees in wealthy countries, particularly in the United States. The U.S. experienced one of the worst instances of disaster-induced displacement in 2012 after Hurricane Sandy forced 776,000 people out of their homes. ”
