The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation
“Homelessness is curable. For too long, homelessness has been viewed as intractable and pervasive, rather than a crisis worth solving. More than 568,000 people experienced homelessness on a given night in the United States, before the pandemic. Community Solutions has proven that people do not have to live this way. Its racially equitable response is primed for this moment.”
— President John Palfrey, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation
“With its Built for Zero initiative, Community Solutions has put together the right ingredients to achieve an audacious goal. They are supporting local partnerships that bring together all the government agencies and community partners that serve individuals and families facing homelessness — smartly using technology to identify needs at the individual level, as well as opportunities and insights to change how systems operate as a whole. The rigor and intentionality of their approach will yield lessons for us all those working to achieve impact at scale.”
— Jeff Edmondson, Executive Director of Community Mobilization, Ballmer Group
“Kaiser Permanente is investing in homelessness and housing insecurity because there is a proven link between housing and health. Addressing affordable housing and homelessness is crucial to Kaiser Permanente’s mission to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve, and to advance the economic, social and environmental conditions for health.”
— Bechara Choucair, Chief Health Officer, Kaiser Permanente
Rocket Community Fund
“Across the country, nearly 40,000 veterans will experience homelessness tonight. This is both extremely heartbreaking and completely unacceptable. We are in the business of helping people realize the dream of homeownership, and we understand the tremendous value of a place to call your own. Together with Community Solutions and local partners, we will ensure that veterans are placed into permanent supportive housing, building the foundation they need to create permanent change.”
— Jay Farner, CEO, Rocket Companies
“Community Solutions has been a pioneer in the use of data to empower decision-makers and make an end to homelessness possible. Scaling this program and helping eliminate veteran and chronic homelessness in an additional 50 communities, we have an opportunity to help change the national conversation and show that this is a challenge that we can overcome within our lifetime.”
— Neal Myrick, Global Head, Tableau Foundation
The Home Depot Foundation
“The Home Depot Foundation has been a proud partner of Community Solutions since 2011, and while we have since seen veteran homelessness decrease by more than 50 percent, there is more work to be done. The Home Depot Foundation is committed to ending veteran homelessness, and we believe it is important to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for our country. Built for Zero provides a holistic solution to the issue of veteran homelessness and empowers communities to create strategies to solve for this challenge.”
