Insulated shelters Iglou 

The iglou

An innovative solution designed to save lives

50% of homeless people who  call 115 don't get a place. Emergency homes are saturated.

Saturation of the programs of help for homeless

Homeless people are minimum two per room in shelters. They have the choice between being seperated or sleep outside.

Privacy

The Needs

Homeless shelters are often stressful for social workers and users. A lot of people refuse those structures, not nice enough.

Safety

Emergency shelters are often far from where the homeless people are living. Some people will refuse shelters in fear of losing their friends and space.

Flexibility & Emergency

It's much easier to sleep at night and wake up in the morning. This iglou is precious

I worked abroad on wind turbine construction sites as a quality manager for a couple of years. When I got back, I realized the critical homeless situation in France. This project is a way to use my technical knowledge to meet a social challenge.

A big thanks to the Squat Mission of Médecins du Monde and the Tripote and Mascagne charities for their logistic help ! The first feedbacks are good, the users have made the iglous theirs and those who were not able to get one are asking for one !
