These aren’t your average shelters; Sturgeon is opening up two million-dollar-mansions for residents to occupy to help them get back on their feet. Sturgeon made sure the rent was affordable for these families-in-need, charging them $1/month.

Sturgeon is a property investor and owns a real estate company. Although he centers his attention on commercial property, he also owns two mansions currently up for sale. After seeing and hearing the devastation that mother nature caused, he decided he could put these vacant homes to good use.

“I was just thinking about having those two big homes,” Sturgeon told KDAF News. “It doesn’t make sense for them to be vacant when somebody could be using them that obviously would have a great need.”

Although the homes are located two hours from the Dallas area where most of the damage occurred, he’s had over 70 applicants. He plans to allow a family occupy the residence for three months. If the properties haven’t sold, the families can continue to stay in the mansions, complete with hot tub and home theatre.
