About us

Our Mission

We work to end homelessness and the conditions that create it. We do it by helping communities become better problem solvers, so they can fix the expensive, badly designed systems that our most vulnerable neighbors rely on every day.

Our Story

Rosanne Haggerty spent 20 years developing affordable housing, but she couldn’t build apartments nearly as fast as homelessness and poverty were expanding. In 2011, she launched Community Solutions with a team of co-founders to find faster solutions by adapting successful problem solving tools from other sectors. Today, we help communities optimize their existing resources to make measurable social change at scale.

In our first four years, our work helped 25 times as many people as our team’s previous twenty years of work combined.
