ShelterBox USA Jul 03, 2018 12:00 PM

ShelterBox is a global organization made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital.

When people are plunged into crisis, normality is suspended. But good, quality shelter can cut through the chaos. This is why we provide the tools that enable people to rebuild homes and transform their lives.

We do things differently. We were born different. We started life as a small organization in the UK and have grown to make a big impact across the world. We don’t follow the crowd – we’ve carved our own path that leads straight to the families we support.

Our pledge

We are impatient to see a world where no family is left without shelter when disaster strikes. This drives us to transform the support of our donors, fundraisers and volunteers into the hope and power of families all over the world – the power to rebuild homes, lives and communities.

Our impatience leads to determination. We will do whatever it takes to ensure that no family goes without shelter.

What we do

We put families first. The commitment of our supporters enables us to provide emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by conflict and natural disaster.

We don’t believe that one size fits all. We work hard to understand the impact of each emergency and the need this creates within individual communities. The equipment we provide, whatever shape it takes, gives people the hope and the power to transform their own lives.
