Our Work

The stories we tell matter. And who shapes and tells the stories has power. At the Housing Narrative Lab, we work 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, low-paying jobs, racist and exclusionary housing practices – we lay the groundwork for local and national solutions.
