Our Work

The IGHhub is only one part of the work that IGH does. IGH is committed to assisting 150 cities end street homelessness by 2030 through partnerships with a number of local, national and regional organizations across six continents. This deadline aligns with existing global targets, including the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To meet it, we will continue to build on our four program areas:

  • Supporting Leadership: We identify, equip, and connect leaders who challenge street homelessness at a local, national, or global level.
  • Exchanging Knowledge: We identify and disseminate effective practice and policy solutions to street homelessness through online research and practice resources and face-to-face encounters.
  • Creating a Global Infrastructure: We foster joint action, provide common language, track progress, support regional networks, and help cities access additional resources to solve the problem locally.
  • Advocating for Change: We provide a voice for street homeless people and the agencies that serve them in the global arena.

We believe cultivating leaders, exchanging knowledge, creating a global infrastructure and advocating for change are the right building blocks for a global movement to end street homelessness. We look forward to continuing to partner with you to advance the important work we have started together.

A Place to Call Home Initiative

IGH is partnering with key global strategic partners to launch A Place to Call Home, a global effort to support 150 cities to end street homelessness by 2030. The foundation for this effort will be the pioneering work of a small group of cities who will work toward ending street homelessness by 2020. Their work will show what is possible, clearing the path for 25 more cities working to end street homelessness by 2025, then a final 120 cities to end street homelessness by 2030. ​
