One-year institution.png

​The One-Year Institute is comprised of a cohort of no more than 14 passionate and committed people of faith who will learn ways to the address housing/homeless crisis in their communities through local churches, partnerships and policy. Participants will practice within their own community a theology of advocacy, land use, and housing as part of God’s mission and the human right to housing.

During the course, we will examine case studies of how churches and faith-rooted visionaries, community developers, advocates and community organizers are addressing the housing crisis, and thereby transforming people and communities.


The course includes:

  • Guest speakers

  • Interactive assignments

  • Readings

  • Site visits

  • Community-based research

  • Skill development

  • Firsthand experiences will engage affordable housing developers, local decision makers, policy, best practice models and processes of systemic change within a community.
