The grant supports the development of the Greg Jackson Center for Brownsville, a community hub which will address critical gaps in the neighborhood, in the areas of arts and culture, health and mental health, and employment.
Community Solutions partners with communities locally, nationally and internationally, in order to grow their capacity to end homelessness, by using tested strategies. Signature elements of this work are the “100,000 Homes Campaign” to mobilize and train communities throughout the United States to house, collectively, 100,000 vulnerable homeless individuals and families over three years, and the Brownsville Partnership, a comprehensive homelessness prevention partnership with a New York City neighborhood with historically high rates of homelessness.
