SAFE T HOME®
GoServ Global has teamed up with Sukup Manufacturing Co. to bring relief to the families without homes. Using highly-modified grain bins, what we call a Safe T Home®, we have been able to provide nearly 200 homes in Haiti alone. This has allowed people without homes since the massive and devastating earthquake in 2010 almost to finally have a place of their own. In addition, GoServ Global’s latest Safe T Home® project in Peru is the Hidden Creeks Bible Camp.
Hurricane Matthew, hitting Haiti in October 2016 with winds of up to 145 mph, put the nearly 200 Safe T Homes® in Haiti to the test. ALL of the Safe T Homes withstood the hurricane with minimal damage!
