Who We Are

Everyone deserves a place to call home.

Right now, more than 100 million people around the world have lost their homes to disaster and conflict. We are working to change this. By providing emergency shelter, tools, and household supplies to displaced families after disaster, we enable families to begin to rebuild and recover, transforming despair into hope.
