Emergency Disaster Relief
Right now, over 100 million people around the world have been made homeless by disaster and conflict. We’re working to change this.
By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we’re transforming despair into hope.
We want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.

Give a Tent for Lent
What could you give up to give shelter this Lent?
By giving up something for Lent and raising money in aid of ShelterBox, you can provide tents and other shelter essentials for families who have lost everything to disaster.
Creative supporters have gone without chocolate, given up negativity and even forgone their own beds by camping out in a tent during Lent!
Every penny we raise together could give a family a home, and with a home comes a powerful sense of new hope.
