At Sheltersuit Foundation, we understand that working with people experiencing homelessness demands swift action, innovation and effective resources.

That’s why we've established partnerships with helping organisations, bringing dignified solutions to those who need it most.

That is the art in this work. Establishing trust. Sometimes a conversation is worth more than any pill.

129 jobs created for newcomers to the labor market

The people working at the atelier form the heart of the organisation. Without this wonderful team, we wouldn't be able to produce products for those living in harsh conditions.

At Sheltersuit Foundation, we have a diverse range of nationalities among our workforce. Some people work on a voluntary basis at Sheltersuit, while others are employed on a permanent basis.

In the atelier, the majority of workers are people with a distance to the labor market from countries such as Syria, Ukraine, and Eritrea. They often have experience in textiles and are empowered once again at Sheltersuit Foundation.

The ultimate goal is to prepare them for the labour market through Sheltersuit Foundation. We support them with Dutch language lessons (in addition to their integration courses), and Sheltersuit employs a job coach to provide the best possible support to the workers.

Sheltersuit feels like one big family.

141.710 kg leftover materials upcycled

In the production of our  products, we use as many leftover materials as possible.

For the exterior of the products, we use high-quality materials from TenCate Outdoor Fabrics and TenCate Protective Fabrics. Additionally, for the lining of our products, we utilize items such as sleeping bags collected from festivals and sourced from thrift stores.
