About Us

Each night thousands of people experience homelessness and sleep on sidewalks, under highway overpasses, in parks, abandoned buildings, and vehicles. Permanent housing is the goal but its going to take a few decades to build. 

This is why City Pods is on a mission to scale temporary housing and provide everyone who's experiencing homelessness access to a dignified place to sleep. Our Pods provide a stepping stone in times of personal crisis onto a stable path. 

We’re building a company that not only helps those experiencing homelessness but also a company that is strengthening the community for locals and visitors. City Pods bring our fellow citizens off the streets and into a stable environment so local businesses can thrive again.
