stories of our community at work
Every Shelter creates durable shelters for refugees at scale through a sustainable model of empowering in-country, refugee-led businesses. In response to the earthquake damage in Turkey and Syria in February 2023, Every Shelter provided its emergency floors to create a thermal barrier against freezing temperatures for thousands of displaced people. After moving production of thermal floors to Turkey in 2020, Every Shelter was uniquely positioned to act swiftly in this time of crisis.
In a connection with the broader Praxis community, Julie Aleman, Praxis Nonprofit Mentor, shared that the Younger Family Fund provided financial support to Every Shelter to enable their targeted efforts to aid refugees immediately after the earthquakes struck.
