A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME
It’s often said that ‘Home Is Where The Heart Is’. But what is a home? What does it mean to be home? What does ‘home’ mean to you? For some, it’s a place of warmth, love and family. But for others, it’s an experience of heartache, struggle and loneliness. No matter where you come from in the world - or your story - the idea of home holds a very fragile place in each our hearts and is so much more than something physical. “A House Is Not A Home”.
Homelessness is a vastly misunderstood issue because we confuse it with houselessness. Houselessness is a physical state. Homelessness is a heart condition. One that cannot be solved by physical things like houses, clothes, or food alone. Hopelessness and loneliness are the two biggest problems our modern world faces.
Every single person on the planet longs for home
What started in 2014 as a passion project among a group of friends has spiralled into a global movement that is rewriting the story of homelessness.
Starting out as a streetwear brand to meet the immediate short-term needs of those on our streets, OutsideIn has the long-term goal of ending homelessness in our lifetime and are constantly evolving and collaborating with other people and organisations to make that happen.
"Home Is Where The Hope Is"
We partner with local organisations and work with people directly on the ground to bridge the gap between society and homelessness.
Each of our ethically-made products come with an extra one for our customers to give to someone in need.
This ‘Wear One, Share One’ model encourages people like you to go way beyond meeting a mere physical need.
We designed it with connection in mind.
To create an opportunity for a relationship to form that can bring about real, lasting change.
A chance to look people directly in the eye, instead of diverting your gaze. To spend your time, not just your money rewriting the story of homelessness.
To bring those from the outside of society, in. And to carry home with us, wherever we go.
A beanie or a sweater isn’t going to change the world, but you can.
One group of friends can’t end homelessness. But together, we will.
