Rosanne Haggerty is the president and CEO of Community Solutions, an internationally recognized leader in developing innovative strategies to end homelessness and strengthen low-income communities. Community Solutions works throughout the U.S., using data and design insights to solve the complex problems facing some of the country’s most vulnerable residents. The organization is leading large-scale change initiatives, including the Zero: 2016 campaign to end chronic and veteran homelessness in the US, as well as neighborhood-based partnerships that bring together local residents and institutions to change the conditions that produce homelessness and perpetuate poverty. Earlier in her career, Haggerty founded Common Ground Community, a pioneer in the development of supportive housing and research-based practices that end homelessness.
