Community Solutions is a nonprofit that leads Built for Zero, a movement made up of more than 90 cities and counties that have committed to measurably ending homelessness for entire populations. Using data, these communities have changed how local homeless response systems work and the impact they can achieve. The goal is to achieve a milestone known as functional zero — an ongoing state where homelessness is continuously rare and brief.

Community Solutions works to prevent inflow into homelessness from happening in the first place, build and sustain homeless response systems that can continuously end — rather than manage — homelessness for populations across a geography, and quickly deliver affordable housing that can close the housing gap.
