TheĀ Institute of Global Homelessness (IGH) envisions a world where everyone has a home that offers security, safety, autonomy, and opportunity. The IGH works toward that vision through three strategic priorities:

  • See It – We advocate for international homeless policy focused on
    defining and measuring global homelessness
  • Solve It – We partner with cities and countries around the world eager to take concrete action to end local homelessness
  • Share It – We connect with others to build a global knowledge network

The IGH is the first organisation to focus on homelessness as a global phenomenon with an emphasis on those who are living on the street or in emergency shelters. It is a partnership between Depaul International and DePaul University, in Chicago, where the IGH is based.

In February 2018, the IGH launched a global homelessness resource hub – IGH Hub – aimed at giving leaders across the world who are working to address homelessness resources to inform and shape their work.

The IGH staff and Advisory Committee work with a broad network of world-class advisors, experts, and organisations – balancing geographies, cultures, and skills. The IGH was founded by Mark McGreevy, Group Chief Executive of Depaul International, who continues to support the Institute’s work part-time.
