“Although Homes On Wheels Alliance, Inc. (HOWA) is a new start-up charitable organization, the problem it recognizes as requiring solutions is not. Economic insecurity is steadily increasing among all US senior citizens —rising by 2 million households between 2004 and 2008 — and single women are especially vulnerable. According to the Senior Financial Security Index (SFSI), while senior single women can expect to live longer than men, many have insufficient retirement assets to cover the rising costs of essential needs, especially housing. This means that the available retirement wealth they do have must be stretched farther and thinner until, for many, there is simply nothing left.
While we recognize that numerous programs exist to help alleviate the problem of homelessness and its associated issues, few programs exist that provide direct assistance and guidance to those who are still are working, especially working senior citizens, and who are facing losing the security of having shelter.
HOWA’s founders have chosen the “nomad life,” enjoying the freedom to travel, personal security, camaraderie, self-fulfillment and personal accomplishment. They live out of alternative shelters such as RVs, vans, box trucks, bus conversions and automobiles. They are corporately employed, self-employed and/or live on their retirement savings and income. As a result of the founders’ published success and love of the “nomad lifestyle,” those in need have asked for guidance and assistance to accomplish the same for themselves.
Thus Homes On Wheels Alliance, Inc. is born. This is an amazing story, and journey, of entrepreneurship, the strength and courage of the human spirit, and the willingness to help others without reliance upon government.”
