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.
The IGH Framework provides common vocabulary and categories to describe homelessness that resonates across regions. The Framework is available at this link.
IGH supports the development of regional networks to address homelessness where they do not already exist. We link new and existing regional networks to facilitate the rapid flow of new ideas.
Measurement & Data
Through the A Place to Call Home initiative IGH will assist participating cities with improving measurement of homelessness and data collection.
