Welcome to ShelterBox USA

Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been displaced by natural disaster and conflict. ShelterBox is working to change this. 

Natural disasters and conflicts never take days off, and neither do we. We’re always on the ground, working to help the most vulnerable, no matter how remote. We’re hammering pegs, tying knots and building shelter right now.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for displaced families, we’re transforming despair into hope.

We are striving for a world where no family is left without shelter. Join us. Make a difference. Do something.

About Us

ShelterBox is made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital. We provide the tools that enable people to rebuild homes and transform their lives.

Building Peace

Every minute, more families lose everything in the chaos of conflict. Their homes, their livelihoods, and even family members are brutally snatched away. Take a look at how we’re helping to build peace, one family at a time here.
