A Place to Call Home

The Institute of Global Homelessness (IGH) launched the A Place to Call Home initiative in 2017 with key global strategic partners to begin pioneering work in 13 Vanguard Cities across 6 continents. Each city has made a commitment to significantly reduce or end street homelessness in reflection of their local context.

The initiative is designed to support and uplift local expertise and innovation while reaping the benefits of both community and global exchange. In A Place to Call Home, IGH leverages the foundation of its work — supporting leadership, exchanging knowledge, creating a global infrastructure, and advocating for change — to make a meaningful impact on street homelessness in cities across the globe.
