Housing + Community Development

Strong communities begin with stable, affordable housing and accessible community institutions. Creating greater access to housing and empowering people to create change within their own communities are crucial to the long-term health of a city or town—and are the foundation from which educational opportunity and economic growth can emerge.

We offer substantial experience leading research, evaluation, and planning projects related to housing, homelessness, community development, and neighborhood change.  Our work has involved assessing the need for housing for a wide range of populations (such as transition age youth, the chronically homeless, and people with mental health needs), working with communities to support collaboration across sectors to address and fund housing option across a wide spectrum of need, and evaluating services necessary for people to stay stably housed or transition to more independent housing.
