Families experiencing homelessness often refuse mass shelter, instead living in a tent or RV. That’s because congregate shelters have strict rules for entry. For example, shelters can be women’s only or have age limits. People cherish living with their children, partners, and pets. Cities should create a diverse mix of shelter options to address unhoused families.
In a Pallet village, all are welcome. We build communities with our rapid-build shelters, bathrooms, and more. Families connect with on-site services, such as job assistance, mental health assistance, and housing navigation. By living in a private village, residents have a safe place to stabilize. Connecting with services is essential to moving people toward permanent housing.contact us
For people experiencing homelessness – especially for those living alone – pets are family. There are many benefits to having a companion, including providing emotional support, being good for establishing a routine, and having non-judgmental companion. By allowing pets into Pallet shelter villages, people are more open to accepting private shelter.
