Understanding Racial Inequity & Housing Instability

Racial and ethnic minorities experience homelessness in greater numbers and for longer periods. To address these disparities, we need to recognize racial inequity as a root cause of housing instability.

Supporting Partnerships for Anti-Racist Communities (SPARC) is a multi-city initiative that engages policymakers, service providers, and communities to develop community-driven efforts to address racial inequity and homelessness.

SPARC conducts research, holds public discussions, and provides training to local leaders in housing, health care, educational, and criminal justice to transform communities and systems.

With support from Oak Foundation and others, SPARC is an initiative of C4 Innovations in partnership with the Bassuk Center. To learn more, visit SPARC.
