An affordable, sustainable solution to unsheltered homelessness

An affordable, sustainable solution to unsheltered homelessness

[Note from editor: The “Mastermind Showcase” highlights companies and news from members of the GEM. Today’s showcase: Pallet.]

Pallet builds durable, portable, and affordable shelters for the more than half a million people facing homelessness across the U.S. They offer a 64 square foot version starting at $4,900 as well as a 100 square foot version starting at $7,000.

Prefabricated at Pallet’s factory headquarters, the shelters are shipped on a wood pallet in seven panel pieces, are built in less than one hour with minimal tools, and come outfitted with beds, climate control, safety features, electricity, and more.

They offer a stepping stone out of personal crisis and into a life of stability. They hire and invest in people actively engaged in recovery and reintegration.

As of January 2021, Pallet has assembled hundreds of shelters across 9 states nationwide, including the Riverside community with 30 emergency shelters and the 60 houses they stood up in Sonoma County.

What we like: A social-purpose company putting an end to unsheltered homelessness; but, Pallet’s mission doesn’t stop with it’s shelters. The majority of employees have first-hand lived experience with homelessness, addiction, or incarceration. Turnkey rapid deployment of housing is a win-win all the way around.
