What is A Place in the World?

A Place in the World—sister study to 2009’s groundbreaking Opening Doors report—provides the foundational nomenclature for housing and service delivery models with the goal to further define market segments, establish best practices and guiding principles, and helps drive crucial partnerships that address pressing needs resulting from the current housing crisis.

What's In A Place in the World?

The study serves as the definitive resource for the housing industry, scholars, direct service providers, policymakers, researchers and other stakeholders, driving the following actions:

  • Establish the universal language indispensable for innovation and the expansion of and investment in supportive housing developments throughout the U.S. and beyond.
  • Make it possible for housing developers and technology providers to better grasp the needs and nuances of this market and respond with innovative solutions and a range of price points that includes public and private funding sources.
  • Enable the collection, tracking and sharing of baseline and outcome data.
  • Facilitate major policy advances based on data—a key criteria—versus solely on ideology.

The study is informed through data collection, research, think tanks and collaboration with various industry thought leaders, culminating in a report, collateral materials and videos.
