The problem
Based on national reports, no less than 150 million people, or about 2 percent of the world’s population, are homeless. About 1.6 billion, or more than 20 percent of the world’s population, lacks adequate housing (including the more than 1 billion people who live in slums). The experience of homelessness can vary from the absence of adequate living quarters to the lack of a permanent residence that provides roots, security, identity and wellbeing. In many cities across developing and developed countries, growing homelessness is straining resources. Corporations can support adequate, safe housing in many ways, including through their impact on job creation and equitable economic growth, involvement in the community and charitable giving, and choices around physical locations and presence in neighborhoods
