A look at our impact

Pallet began with a two-fold mission: end unsheltered homelessness and build a workforce of people impacted by the criminal justice system.

Pallet began with a two-fold mission: end unsheltered homelessness and build a workforce of people impacted by the criminal justice system. The shelters we manufacture allow us to do both. Cities and counties that want to address the homelessness crisis buy our shelters to create a transitional housing village. A local social service agency manages the site — giving people living there access to services crucial to regaining stability. Our staff who manufacture the shelters work in a supportive, purpose-driven environment.

Highlights from 2020 include: creating dignified shelter beds in 21 cities, keeping our employees working during a time of record job loss, and offering a way for elected officials to continue to respond to the homelessness crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic.
