Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide temporary, transitional shelter and connections to social services to help get people off the streets and to provide first response shelter for disaster relief. Our vision is to bridge the gap between design and humanity by attracting attention to social issues such as homelessness through design. Once we begin distribution of these shelters we hope to live in a world where no one has to sleep without protection due to poverty or natural disaster.

Description

Cardborigami is an innovative and thoughtful approach to alleviate homelessness due to disaster or poverty. The product is a portable shelter that provides privacy and protection from the elements. The shelters are waterproof, flame-retardant, and can fold open and closed in less than a minute to provide instant space with no assembly required. When not in use or when being transported, each unit can be folded into a size that is easily carried by one person.
