As of last year, there were 552,830 homeless people in America, with 358,363 of them living in shelters as a means to provide for themselves. These shelters are tasked with clothing, sheltering, and feeding these individuals, helping them to start anew and pick themselves back up. A big part of this homeless recuperation effort is the shelter furniture that is required to help homeless sleep comfortably and stack their belongings. That’s where Shelter Outfitters and our high-quality shelter furniture products come into the picture.
What is Shelter Furniture?
Shelter furniture is a special kind of furniture that has been built with shelter conditions and arrangements in mind. Shelters are tasked with fitting as many homeless as they can safely accommodate in their spaces, helping as many people as possible along the way. Therefore, they need functional and high-quality furniture that is durable, long lasting, space maximizing, and sleek in design.
We proudly carry a Series 600 Bunk Bed that can double the amount of sleepers per single space in a room, as well as an HDIS-1 Heavy Duty Inverted Seam Nylon Mattress that ensures shelter residents are able to sleep soundly. Without the ability to enter REM sleep, these individuals will struggle to repair their bodies and minds in the shelter. Therefore, our heavy-duty mattress is made with breathable, soft, and antimicrobial material that is water resistant and most importantly, flippable for switching in-between shelter residents. It also has an inverted seam to prevent the infestation of bed bugs.
Additionally, while utilizing a smaller-than-normal amount of space in shelters, we carry Double Wardrobe Shelves that create additional closet and storage space in any room. With a sturdy, welded steel cabinet design that utilizes full height piano hinges, pan reinforced doors, and a three-point locking system with two handles, shelter residents can maximize their personal space and begin to collect important belongings like clothing, documents, electronics, etc. We want shelter residents to begin repairing their lives and building up their potential.
