Community Solutions (CS) is a national not-for-profit organization whose mission is to strengthen communities to end homelessness.

Based in New York city, CS partners with community leaders, public agencies, non-profits, property developers and health and human services organizations to create practical, scalable, cost effective solutions to homelessness. Our approach has been featured on "60 Minutes," in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and other media, and recognized with the Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation, the World Habitat Award, and the Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence, among other honors.

Our goal is to accelerate change by bringing proven, replicable innovations that end homelessness to a national scale, working with what we call "tipping point" communities, as well as to advance new models of homelessness prevention and community development.

CS's cornerstone initiatives include:

  • The 100,000 Homes Campaign, an unprecedented effort to support and coordinate a multitude of national organizations and local communities to collectively house 100,000 homeless individuals and families by July of 2013;
  • The first supportive housing projects in post-Katrina New Orleans, where homelessness rose by 70 percent in the wake of the storm; and
  • Community partnerships with neighborhoods struggling with high rates of homelessness, including Brownsville, Brooklyn, and Northeast Hartford, CT.
