HUV (Homeless Utility Vehicle): A temporary personal shelter constructed as a mobile vehicle to be used by the homeless. The vehicle is intended for individuals who have been victimized by both natural disaster and political conflict, resulting in insufficient housing. The HUV is not a cure for homelessness but rather a transitional means of housing. In addition, the HUV serves to elevate individuals from substandard living conditions by providing mobile and practical, yet private, housing.

The HUV Project addresses the pressing issue of homelessness on a worldwide basis. The HUV can effectively provide an immediate temporary housing solution for homeless individuals, uniquely different from other types of transitional housing. The HUV seeks to increase autonomy for the homeless, by providing a personal space with storage, sleeping accommodations, and privacy. The use of the HUV increases options for individuals devastated by disaster, by acting as an independent home-base unit. While allowing mobility, the HUV provides an opportunity to elevate a homeless individual's self-perception and esteem. The homeless face social stigma, with limited choices in living accommodations; the HUV aims to provide an increased sense of independence, while reducing negative self-perceptions, stimulating hope, and redefining the public perception of homelessness.
I had a great night sleep in my HUV last night.
