The Smart Family Foundation t/a Shelters
Plus is a 501©3 non-profit private organization incorporated in 1996 under the laws of the State of Maryland.
True to our roots in the building industry our primary
focus is to provide shelter for those who are “the poorest of the poor.” Shelters Plus is dedicated to working
with non-profit organizations to provide sustainable low cost shelter to families and children who are victims of natural,
disasters, live in wretched housing, and have absolutely no means of providing adequate shelter for themselves.
Additionally as a small family foundation we have the flexibility
to provide direct services for immediate humanitarian needs. We partner with “in-country” agencies and charitable
organizations. In visiting the people of El Salvador and Mexico we are present to those who are recipients of our funding.
It is in being present that we are in solidarity with the poor.
All contributions go directly to the projects. Airfare, food and lodging are paid by the individuals traveling
to designated sites.
