The mission of Design Resources for Homelessness is to positively affect the design of environments that assist persons who are homeless or formerly homeless. It does so by connecting design practitioners and scholars, advocacy organizations, policy makers, teachers and students to research and other information as well as each other, to inform design decisions that enhance the potential to assist recovery.


We believe:

  • All persons deserve to be sheltered in humane and supportive physical environments so that they can recover from trauma and resume their lives as full members of the community.
  • mDignity, empowerment, safety, function and economic efficiency can be supported by physical architecture.
  • The free exchange and sharing of knowledge advances societal progress.
  • Generating new knowledge can move design innovation forward to the benefit of all.
