Interested in starting a village?
SquareOne provides consulting services
and partnership opportunities
to help along the way...
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:
respond to needs and desires specific to the local community,
draw on additional support and resources that already exist within the community, and
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 1-hour consultation and have your questions answered by one of the SquareOne directors. These consultations are intended for groups actively planning a village, and include a $100 fee to support our operations.
