Our commitment to ending homelessness and ensuring safe, stable, affordable housing for all is at the heart of our work. We believe homelessness is unjust and unconscionable, and that access to housing and services is a basic human right.
We identify and promote evidence-based practices, train thousands of homeless service providers each year, and provide organizational consultation to improve homeless services throughout the U.S. and internationally. We also develop a wide range of technical assistance and learning products in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Led by Laura Gillis
, our Homelessness and Housing team includes service providers, trainers, researchers, and people who have experienced homelessness.
