A New Conversation About Homelessness

No matter our race, gender or how much we have in our wallets, we all want a safe place we can call home. Americans are ready for a national conversation about why housing remains out of reach for so many.

The Housing Narrative Lab is a national communications and narrative research hub that lifts up the stories of people facing homelessness and housing insecurity and the systems that keep them from finding and keeping a home. Let’s join together to push for change that ensures everyone has a home.

Our Work

We know the stories we tell matter. That’s why the Housing Narrative Lab is working to foster greater public understanding of the root causes that force our neighbors into homelessness – lack of affordable housing, jobs that don’t pay enough, exclusionary housing practices. We are setting the groundwork for local and national policy change to solve our housing crisis.
