We're proud to be one of six finalists in the running for the MacArthur Foundation’s $100 million grant for a single, world-changing idea. Learn more.
Homelessness is solvable.
This is not a radical belief — we work with more than 80 cities and counties making it a reality every day.
We can create a future
where homelessness is never inevitable or a way of life.
Many communities are already on their way
How we help communities end homelessness
Our work seeks to answer one urgent question: what will it take to create a lasting end to homelessness that leaves no one behind?
Built for Zero
More than 80 communities are demonstrating what is possible when homeless systems are designed to get to zero.
In order to end homelessness for good, we must understand how to prevent it.
Creating housing, faster
A social-impact investment model is solving for affordable housing challenges in a way that can be replicated by nearly any community.
ZERO IS A MINDSET, A METHODOLOGY,
AND A GROWING REALITY
Black people are five times more likely to experience homelessness and Native Americans are four times more likely to experience it than someone who is white. This is no accident.
This tool enables teams to account for every person experiencing homelessness in real time, and is the critical first step to solving homelessness for the entire community.
