Community Solutions is a hardworking team of social problem solvers working to end homelessness and the conditions that create it. We see these challenges as systems design problems— not just resource issues. Our team helps communities use modern problem-solving tools, like design thinking, quality improvement, and data analytics to improve the design, coordination, and delivery of lasting, root cause solutions.
Since 2011, we’ve helped US communities find homes for more than 170,000 homeless Americans at a taxpayer savings of more than $2 billion. Nine of those communities have ended either chronic or veteran homelessness outright— and two have ended both. We are led by Macarthur Fellow and internationally recognized innovator Rosanne Haggerty. Our work has been featured on 60 Minutes and The New York Times and recognized by the White House, the United Nations and the Smithsonian.
Community Solutions strives for inclusivity and diversity by attracting extraordinary people from diverse backgrounds and lived experiences. We seek to employ an all-star team of people who vary by their race and ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, culture, religion, and physical and mental abilities. We provide generous benefits (see below!) and opportunities for inspiring and transformational professional growth. We pride ourselves in developing an inclusive workplace culture that encourages staff to bring their whole selves to work every day.
