About this video

Rosanne Haggerty speaks to any person who is frustrated by a huge social problem, and feels they only have tools to manage the symptoms. Instead, she offers a powerful story of her long and hard work to end homelessness, system-wide. She leaves us with one transformative thought: “our pride in our most recent innovation may be the barrier in seeing what our next one could be.”


Rosanne Haggerty is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Community Solutions. She is an internationally recognized leader in developing innovative strategies to end homelessness and strengthen communities. In 1990, Rosanne founded Common Ground Community, a pioneer in the development of supportive housing and research-based practices that end homelessness. To have greater impact, Rosanne and our senior team launched Community Solutions in 2011 to help communities solve the problems that create and sustain homelessness.
