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.

Our Strategy

Create

We develop breakthrough solutions to build homes and communities better, easier, and faster.

Prove

We believe in innovating the nonprofit sector, including our own work, so we build communities using our new tools and tech and listen closely to the people we serve.

Share

As we develop helpful solutions, we share them with other nonprofits and governments working to end global homelessness. We’re all in this together.

We lean on the smartest people we know.
