Tuesday, August 22, Holmes Stoner, Chairman of American International Chamber of Commerce ( AICC), Pacific Rim Business Council (PRBC) held a press conference of Container Housing Project “Affordable Home Program” for the presentation by government officials and the veterans administration in Marina City Club Los Angeles.

Cascon Industries, one of the largest container manufacturers in the world, based in Hai Duong Vietnam, will donate a container home to a deserving homeless veteran to show sincerity and respect for America and its deserving veteran soldiers making an event of historic importance.

Cascon leads in the world of container home manufacturing providing new ideas and development in eco living and sustainability through their exclusive relationship with the Pacific Rim Business Council based in Los Angeles. With the upcoming TPP trade talks this offer is of great importance showing the priority Vietnam and America relations share in the future; making this a very historic event!

This monumental event is being supported by Support our Servicemen (SOS), a public charity set up to support and assist American who have needs.

Vietnamese VIP’s including Mr. Pham Thang, Chairman of Cascon industries builds modular container homes in his state of the art factory in Hanoi, Vietnam. In a gesture of friendship between Vietnam and America he presented an home to a Veteran. 

A homeless veteran and his family were given a home that is part of the tiny houses trend and is a way to fight homelessness in the U.S.

Tommy Weir and his family had been living in a homeless shelter, but now they have a place to call their own. They were the first to receive a new prefabricated home that was built from a steel container.

The home was created by Affordable Homes 4U, which mass produces steel and container-based homes as a way to house the homeless. It was started in Las Vegas and brought over to Los Angeles.

The Affordable Home Program hopes this move is just the beginning as one homeless veteran family has been taken off the streets. They said their mission is for everyone to enjoy the American dream of home ownership.
