Emergency Floor is the first product of Every Shelter; a non-profit based in Houston, Texas that works globally.

Every Shelter utilizes the power of design
to help displaced communities advance
from surviving to thriving.

We do so by creating innovative low-cost, high-impact products designed specifically to install in any shelter found in the field.

Refugee families live in shelters for 12-17 years on average. This is by no means a temporary living situation, but that's how it's treated. Good Works Studio seeks to harness the power of good design and the economies of scale of mass production to introduce life-saving, dignity-bearing goods that have significant and measurable impact.
