Ending Global Homelessness Through Innovation

About This Episode

The nonprofit New Story is solving global homelessness with innovative and holistic solutions. By providing financing and creating innovative home designs and processes, New Story has built 26 communities in four countries, all while partnering with local builders using local resources. The organization prides itself on experimenting with new housing solutions — they even built the world’s first 3D printed community in Mexico. Since 2015, New Story has funded more than 2,300 homes for more than 11,000 people.

In this episode, Branden speaks with New Story’s CEO, Brett Hagler, about the organization’s experience with startup accelerator Y Combinator, how New Story is coming up with scalable, more efficient solutions for ending homelessness, and how New Story’s latest project is helping improve financing access for families in Latin America. He also shares why we can be hopeful about the future of housing access.
