Our Work

We know the stories we tell matter. And we know that who tells the story has power. That’s why the Housing Narrative Lab works to build narrative power with those most impacted by homelessness. By fostering greater public understanding of the root causes that force our neighbors into homelessness – lack of affordable housing, jobs that don’t pay enough, racist and exclusionary housing practices – we lay the groundwork for local and national solutions.
