New Story pioneers solutions to end global homelessness.

1B+ humans live without safe shelter. We serve families who live day-to-day: by necessity, they’re focused on finding the next meal, the next drink of water, and the next safe place to sleep.

We bring together a diverse ecosystem of partners to build holistic communities for families living in extreme poverty. In those communities, we test, prove, and scale innovations (hardware, software, and processes) to build more homes faster and at a higher quality. We then share those tools and learnings with the social housing sector to impact as many people as possible.

Our impact since 2014:

HOUSING INNOVATION TOOLKIT

When we find a scalable R&D solution, we share them with other nonprofits and governments working to end global homelessness. We’re all in this together.

The problem is bigger than we could ever solve by ourselves.

New Story’s goal is to become an R+D branch of affordable housing.

We partner with world-renowned academics and industry leaders to develop innovations that lower costs, increase speed, and improve quality of community building.
