Welcome to the UNZIPPED +Impact Hub

and #RaiseTheRoof Impact Campaign

The world is in crisis. Record breaking numbers of families cannot afford a decent place to call home. Many households are just a paycheck away from houselessness.

Our film and impact campaign #RaiseTheRoof are an urgent call to action to create more equitable housing solutions for every community, and every family, in America and around the world.

On this page, you’ll find inspiring resources, opportunities to support affordable housing & homeless advocacy organizations, and ways to get involved in the movement to enshrine housing as a human right.

This hub experience was made possible by our partner:
