About

We are a network of community-led housing organizations and allies from across the world, who work together to secure housing rights through collective, people-led solutions.

Beyond public and private actors, organized groups of inhabitants and individuals build cities from the bottom up: they organize, plan, finance, build and manage housing, as well as urban upgrading and infrastructure projects collectively and collaboratively.

Community-led housing has proven to be a great response to the shortcomings of both private and public housing – which remain inaccessible to many.

When supported by adequate financial means and enabling policies, community-led housing processes result in permanently affordable, more sustainable and inclusive urban spaces responding to the needs of local communities.
