Helping Those in Need of Shelter

We believe that shelter is a basic necessity of life. Shelter is comfort. Its a roof over your head. Its a place to sleep at night. Its a safe haven. Whether person or pet, shelter is a necessity. But not everyone has shelter.

Our mission is to support organizations that provide shelter for people and pets. While we're focused mainly in Los Angeles, many of the organizations we support have a national focus.

Check out our list of Charities We Support. You can donate directly to help these organizations too!

Why Shelter Helpers?

Shelters are important because they keep people from harm. Shelters give people a feeling of well-being and boost their will to live. Having a shelter is also a basic human necessity, in addition to food and water. Without shelters, people (and pets) become exhausted and often lose their will to live due to prolonged exposure to the elements.

Building Awareness

The first step in helping others is to be aware of their struggle. The second step, discovering a way to help. We do the research and share the organizations we find with you here. From animal shelters, to community service organizations, to programs that help the homeless get back on their feet, we are Shelter Helpers.
