Shelter is a fundamental part of our lives. Being part of a secure home contributes to wellness and is also a sanctuary or refuge for individuals, families and communities, protecting people from animals and weather patterns. A shelter that has been constructed well or provided in time of need can give someone the morale boost and sense of accomplishment that they need to prepare for the future.
