About us

Shelters to Shutters

Shelters to Shutters is a nonprofit organization that provides housing and employment opportunities to the homeless by educating and engaging real estate/property management leaders and encouraging action within their communities.


It is estimated that over the course of a year, 3.5 million people experience homelessness, 40 percent of whom are children. These individuals and families experience a life-altering event such as a job loss, domestic abuse, or other situations and find themselves where they never thought they would be—without a home. Unlike most perceptions, less than 30% of homeless have drug or alcohol dependency issues, or are mentally ill. Most homeless want to work and return to a life of self-sufficiency.


Shelters to Shutters provides solutions in participating communities for individuals facing homelessness by:

  • Partnering with local organizations that serve the homeless, veterans, and domestic violence victims to identify successful candidates for the Shelters to Shutters Program;
  • Engaging property managers and real estate professionals within the community to provide housing, job opportunities, and mentoring for individuals who are looking for a "hand up" not a "hand out" on their path from homelessness to economic self-sufficiency.


Shelters to Shutters brings together apartment industry and real estate professionals across the country who are committed to offering opportunity and economic independence to individuals facing homelessness. Please join our efforts by serving as a Mentor, interviewing Shelters to Shutters job candidates, and matching these ready-to-work individuals with opportunity.
