the project

Formed in 2014, the Shelter Project's mission is providing safe housing & employment services leading towards economic restoration for the homeless.

We are raising funds to continue our work safely during COVID. 
Every little bit helps, whether $5 or $50 or $500

Donate today and it's doubled with the ioby Pittsburgh COVID match!


Street Movement:
Provides outreach to the unsheltered homeless individuals by setting up a distribution and feeding station. We provide warm meals, bagged lunches, clothing, survival care packages, blankets, and shoes.

Employment Assistance:
Aims at helping low-income and homeless individuals obtain a sustaining income by providing career ready workshops and workshops on nutrition, financial literacy, life-skills and parenting.
