the Homeless

Our story

What we believe

We think that everybody deserves self confidence, development and equality in a more social society. We contribute to this goal by providing the homeless and refugees with warmth. In addition to that we provide a meaningful daily activity for people with special needs and offer them a chance to re-enter the employment market. Sheltersuit is synonymous with meaningful work for homeless people, refugees, as well as people with special needs. This works both ways..

  • Amsterdam – Rembrandtplein


    The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness for people who are forced to sleep outside. As a result of a full homeless shelter or shelters with unsanitary and unsafe conditions, many see sleeping outside as their best alternative, with all its consequences. To create this awareness we got help of our sponsors Isobar, Posterscope, Clear Channel, JCDeceaux and Exterion Media. We confronted the Netherlands with the problem by placing 3500 posters at bus stops and other places throughout the country, raising awareness for the extreme conditions that a lot of homeless people have to endure whilst living on the street. Part of the campaign is that people can send a text message to donate three euros. We were thrilled to see that so many people felt connected to our cause and donated to help the ones in need.
