If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected. But we at Temporary Housing Directory have built our reputation on that premise ever since opening our doors. And, 20 years later, we continue to think outside of the box to coordinate temporary housing solutions for those in need.
So, what happens when calamities — such as the summer wildfires out west or the hurricanes that hit Louisiana in the fall — send multiple thousands of people fleeing for safety? We’re able to place many in hotels quickly, but that doesn’t fit the needs of every customer.
All situations are different. Perhaps a fire displaces a family and their onsite business. Maybe a flood necessitates a temporary move for a couple whose child has special needs. Or perhaps a team of first responders needs a place to call home for weeks – or even months – while they work to get a town back in order. What temporary living options are available to these customers?
These are just a few of the situations illustrating why alternative lodging resources are vitally important. When hotels aren’t available or simply won’t work for a family’s situation, THD has nationwide access to travel trailers, vacation rentals, apartments and even sturdy pop-up homes with plumbing that can be tenant-ready in less than a day.
Surprisingly, many agencies working with insurance companies to house displaced families do not coordinate temporary living quarters in such unique ways. But THD goes far beyond the hotel/motel option. As an industry-leading nationwide insurance housing provider, THD has a history of creative thinking and agile response.
Not only do we have expertise in alternative lodging, we have a team dedicated to navigating the unique search and booking process that comes with these options. We move fast to answer questions, take in requests and meet the specific needs of customers.
When circumstances call for more — or something a little different — trust us to be there for you.
