Homelessness is Solvable The Built for Zero Initiative

The Interfaith Alliance on Poverty is proud to offer Portland a rare presentation by the nationally recognized expert on methods to end homelessness – Rosanne Haggerty, President & CEO of Community Solutions, the sponsor of the Built for Zero initiative.

Co-sponsored by HereTogether and Shelter Now, the “hybrid” (Zoom or in-person) program will further help us to improve and refine our local perspectives.

Built for Zero is a national movement whose methodology and support network assists communities in their journey to end homelessness. Collaboration and testing of ideas to improve outcomes are at the heart of the Built for Zero continuous improvement approach that has proven itself in communities across the United States and Canada.

Community Solutions was recently selected as the recipient of the MacArthur Foundation’s $100M grant as the “single proposal (i.e. Built For Zero) that promises real and measurable progress in solving a critical problem of our time.”

Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, and Clark Counties are at various stages of implementing Built For Zero, providing an exciting opportunity to end homelessness in the region. Come learn why this will work. Portland needs an injection of HOPE underwritten with REALISM. Built for Zero is exactly what’s needed.
