The problem we’re solving is bigger than us, and it’s growing.

An estimated 3 billion people will be living without access to adequate shelter by 2050 — a 200% increase over three decades.

To tackle this massive issue, we’re researching breakthroughs in homebuilding and proving them in every community we build. Then, we’re sharing them with other nonprofit organizations and governments, so collectively, we can all build faster, better, and stronger. Learn more about how we’re pioneering solutions to end global homelessness.

We know we can’t solve it alone.

We know we can’t solve it alone.

We lean on the smartest people we know.
