Pallet’s mission

Pallet is the leader in rapid response shelter villages. The Washington-based company is addressing the homeless crisis with speed and at scale. Pallet shelters combine temporary housing solutions with 24/7 case management from a local service provider. Pallet’s communities are unique and offer shelter where partners can stay together, pets are welcome, and there’s space for personal possessions.
