CrowdDoing is recruiting volunteers to help us simulate homelessness prevention.
Homelessness Prevention Simulation:
Thesis: Home buyers today buy 100% of a home, and borrow money through a mortgage to be able to afford to do so. But this purchase masks the fact that they are buying two things at the same time- 100% of the future sale price of a home (so-called appreciation value), and 100% of the usage rights of that home while they are living there (so-called use value). If people could buy only the percentage of appreciation value that they can afford, and still secure stable access to a home, half of homelessness in dense, coastal urban regions such as the Bay Area, New York, Seattle could be prevented. Stanford University has piloted such a model for decades by allowing professors to buy 100% of the use value of their off-campus home and 50% of the appreciation value of their home. This program has allowed individual professors to have asset diversification, access to housing, and an affordable share of the growth in the appreciating market value of their home. Through this program, Stanford University has created access to housing for professors without grant dollars or housing tax credits in a difficult housing market. Stanford’s endowment has earned returns on this investment comparable to the rest of Stanford endowment investments. The extension of this kind of alternative financing-- investing in a portion of appreciation value per home-- could make possible zero-subsidy affordable housing for preventing homelessness and reducing super-commuting.
In the Bay Area, jobs and housing creation are unbalanced. For the housing demand to be met, an added minimum of 275,000 homes are needed, available at price levels that neither impoverish nor displace working families. Until those homes are built, what solution might bring families with moderate incomes access to existing housing stock? The solution is to provide one part of our housing need solution by using a financial investment model based on the future appreciation of homes.

The only way CrowdDoing.world can realize its impact potential is through virtual volunteers, service learners (http://blog.reframeit.com/service-learning-and-skilled-volunteering/), and micro-leaders ( https://real-leaders.com/leveraging-micro-leadership-to-make-aspirational-goals-achievable/ ) coming together.
See this brief video about Micro-leadership at CrowdDoing ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhdB2YJ8Ocs&app=desktop ). Micro-leadership means that each person adopts a dimension of responsibility for a collective problem in our society through collaborating on that area creatively individually and together through social innovation.

CrowdDoing addresses poverty in regions of great inequality like the Bay Area, NewYork
City and Seattle through fractional home ownership to achieves Housing Security and
CrowdDoing advocates for Zero Subsidy Affordable Housing (ZSAH).
CrowdDoing’s ZSAH program involves collecting data on employed individuals at risk
for future homelessness. Based on this data our team evaluates whether attracting
partners to invest in a portion of the equity of potential homes for this population would
allow individuals to have homes large enough for their families near their workplace.
The idea is that having equity co-investors would allow them to receive and afford prime
mortgages on the remaining equity in these homes. The prevention data promotes the
vision that access to homeownership should not depend upon the percentage of a
home a person can afford. This research allows us to develop a new financial
instrument that can prevent homelessness while being attractive to impact investors.
If we prevent a family’s homelessness by partnering with them to co-purchase a
home, we can not only reduce the risk of their becoming homeless, but also the
risk of other harms associated with homelessness: This initiative can help prevent
negative health impacts (including stress, PTSD, etc.), and, data suggests that
eliminating homelessness may even reduce their risk of mortality by between 50%
