Tent to Home






Tent to Home from Humanwire seeks to transfer vulnerable families from camps to private apartments. First launched in Greece, Tent to Home is a response to the horrific conditions in Greece that refugees face with inadequate shelter. Tent to Home campaigns are unique in that goals are preset to provide rent and ongoing support throughout a six-month period, including a budget for food, utilities, transportation and other special needs.

It takes just a few minutes to set up a campaign and the cost is free. Select from the available Tent to Home campaigns below and make a difference in a single life. How do I lead a campaign?
