80 million children lack access to healthy shelter in Africa alone.

Our Story NEiGHBOuRS

Ten Thousand Homes is a non-profit bringing shelter, nutrition, and educational opportunities to the most vulnerable of the developing world. Join NEiGHBOuRS, our community of monthly givers, to bring the essential services of home to the most vulnerable every single month.

Why Homes? Why homes?

Home is more than four walls and a roof, but it is a great place to start. 1.6 billion people are without adequate shelter and we are on a mission to fix this. We believe that proper shelter is essential to a sense of safety and security. This is where we start, safety and security, but not where we stop. We are committed to do all we can that the most vulnerable have access to nourishment, education, and health care. Through generosity and hard work providing practical services, together, we are building futures!
