The Haven is a group of justice-oriented monthly supporters whose reliable monthly giving helps refugees rebuild their place of safety, stability, and refuge, their haven. Our members believe in refugees and are building solutions to empower refugees.
How You Can Help
The most helpful way to advance our mission is predictable, stable funding. Even small amounts of money given on a predictable basis help us manage planning, expenses, strategy, and budgets.
Per month for one year, can pay for the labor of processing and manufacturing a dozen Bashe Bora Tarps that will provide stronger roofs for twelve displaced families
Can provide a family with Emergency Floor
Or $100/month for one year, can sponsor one person to become an entrepreneur, making and selling tarps through Shelter Workshop

Haven Welcome Kit
Every new member of The Haven receives a kit to welcome them to our community. You'll receive:
A unique, one of a kind "billboard bag" made from leftover billboard tarps. Only members of The Haven who donate $30 or more receive these bags as a "thank you." They are not for purchase.
You Belong Here
We couldn’t do the work we do without them.
This incredible community is composed of generous and passionate people like you— from every age and stage of life who seek to make a difference in the lives of refugees. Haven members desire to bring dignity to the displaced, take new steps forward, and change lives.
"I joined the Haven because I want to use my money to make a difference in the world and each month I know my donation to Every Shelter does just that. It gives opportunities to refugees while also using innovation to improve their shelters makes my donation go even further. Thank you Every Shelter, for helping me make a difference."
"I joined the Haven because I love their focus on improving the lives of refugees by working to improve the built environment that they live in every day, sometimes for years on end. Since starting to partner with Every Shelter, I've only seen them get more passionate about and focused on fulfilling this mission in practical, sustainable ways. I'm always excited to see what's coming next to take new steps forward."
"We joined the Haven because every person should have a space that is safe to sleep in. Every person should have access to a clean floor and stable roof. Every Shelter is doing great work. We have confidence in the wisdom and care of the people leading it out and we are glad to be able to be a (very) small part of it."
Mark & Ashlee
"I chose to join The Haven to help bring stability and security to displaced individuals and families. Refugees are forced to deal with uncertainty in many aspects of their life, and I am proud to support an organization that provides them with real solutions for their day-to-day lives."
"I volunteer to help refugees who resettled in Houston after spending many years in camps near their homes. I was drawn to join The Haven because of Every Shelter's work to help refugees live with dignity during this part of their journey."
"We love being a part of The Haven because we share Every Shelter's value for recognizing the dignity of others through human-centered, quality design. We believe the best, most innovative solutions come from collaborating with those who are on the ground. We are so grateful to learn from watching the process!"
"We joined the Haven because we see the potential for change in the refugee crisis, and think that they are able to make a difference. Engineering, business, and entrepreneurship are our passions, and it's our dream to see those come together through this organization to impact many people across the world. We are so grateful to be able to share our time and finances to equip Every Shelter to change lives."
Elizabeth & Owen
"I donate to The Haven each month not just because I believe in the mission of Every Shelter but because I love how Every Shelter implements its mission. They work with local experts providing a way forward for many people and the innovative, sustainable design is just plain cool. A company that does so much for both relief and development makes me feel like my donations are always being used for something meaningful and lasting."
"I decided to join The Haven because of Every Shelter's human-centered design model and mission, which keeps refugees and the displaced at the center of the story. With such a focus, I know my monthly donations go directly to pressing needs at hand or to the strategic plan Every Shelter continues to build with refugees and the displaced for the future."
