We partner with others in our community because we see a housing challenge that we cannot solve all alone. When everyone gets involved, we have the smartest minds, expanded resources, increased community support, and organizational accountability to meet our goals. This makes real, long-lasting change.

Our relationships with community entities aren’t always one-size-fits-all. There are different types of partnerships with various anticipated outcomes. There are three main categories of community partnerships we seek:

  • For-Profit Partners: Small and large businesses, corporations, and media companies.
  • Nonprofit Partners: Nonprofits, charities, churches, and religious establishments.
  • Government-Led Bodies and Community Support Organizations: Local and state officials, schools, police, libraries, healthcare and service providers.

Forming Partnerships to help the Unhoused

Our partnerships include fundraising campaigns, innovative housing initiatives, and volunteer support. “We continually ask ourselves: Are we providing the service and/or solution we intended? What is the impact to-date? What is the response from those impacted by our work?”

Answers to these questions help us deepen our relationships and continue using our community partnerships strategically. Community partners are essential because we are looking to make widespread change in housing right where we live, work, and play. Come join us!
