Shelter is one of our first basic needs that everyone deserves especially those that have given so much to this great Nation.
We have developed a building process called Thermal Insulated Panel System or TIPS for short. This panelized building method has many benefits. The TIPS are built completely off-site, then we deliver to the prepared site.
RALLY homes are designed on the passive approach, which is a high-performance building standard developed to reduce energy costs. The homes are super insulated, have little to no thermal bridges, well insulated windows, are airtight and we utilize ductless HVAC units, ERV (energy recovery ventilation) and solar systems. Using reclaimed, recycled/upcycled material is another way we reduce build cost and help with the environment. The homes are not only energy efficient, but comfortable and healthy! After the construction of the panels, It only takes a few days to assemble the home once the TIPS are delivered to the site.
Complete with all the furnishings, appliances and amenities needed for the WARRIORS to thrive not just survive!
These homes are designed to be super efficient to operate, utilizing the latest technology to achieve the smallest amount of energy as possible with highest level of comfort.
Solar panels and a Powerwall are integrated to the home to offset costs and provide electricity in all circumstances.
Powerwall is an integrated battery system that stores energy for backup protection, so when the grid goes down the power stays on. The system detects outages and automatically recharges with sunlight or standard grid electricity to keep you operating for days.
We keep the costs as low as possible for the WARRIORS. In most cases we will provide utilities at our expense.
In some locations are will use repurposed shipping containers and/or our mobile TIPS units.
As a crisis response and in emergencies we use RV's and our mobile TIPS units to provide temporary rapid RE-Housing.
Do you know a WARRIOR in your community that we could serve? click here to fill out intake form.
Multiple homes in a community with a WARRIOR Hall (Common Life Center) as the HUB of the neighborhood. The WARRIOR Hall is the place we RALLY to work, play, learn, teach and train.
We are providing homes, not just housing for WARRIORS in need. Building community for these men and women is just one of the ways we are providing a hand up, not a hand out.
In many circumstances we provide transitional services, health care advocates, behavioral health benefits, peer groups and so much more.
We have a work program in place with fellow WARRIORS along with local High School and College building trades students (RALLY Youth Corps.) to build, maintain and repair these homes.
Teaching, learning and working alongside each other is a great benefit to all involved.
