Interested in starting a village?


SquareOne provides consulting services

and partnership opportunities

to help you along the way... 

Our Approach...


In the absence of federal and state resources to adequately address our prolonged housing crisis, SquareOne is committed to developing local, community-driven shelter and housing initiatives.


We believe that building a village should be a collaborative process. Our research and experience has shown that involving the surrounding community and future residents in the housing development process creates a stronger sense of ownership that has the ability to:

  1. respond to needs and desires specific to the local community,

  2. draw on additional support and resources that already exist within the community, and

  3. overcome the common "not in my backyard" (NIMBY) opposition, and build broad political support


SquareOne provides consulting services to assist these initiatives in achieving their goal of starting a successful village.

Want to Work Together?

Start the conversation by requesting a consultation and have your questions answered by SquareOne staff. These consultations are intended for groups actively planning a village, and we ask for a $100 contribution towards our mission for this service.
