Paid Summer Internship – Community Solutions

Community Solutions (CS) is a non-profit organization that works to achieve a lasting end to homelessness that leaves no one behind. They envision a more equitable future where homelessness is never inevitable or a way of life, for anyone. Since 2015, they have led Built for Zero, a movement of more than 70 cities and counties using data to radically change how they work and the impact they can achieve—and proving that it is possible to make homelessness rare and brief. Nearly half of those communities have reduced homelessness in their communities, and 14 have ended veteran or chronic homelessness. In order to help communities equitably and sustainably end homelessness, they are also working to identify solutions that can address gaps in housing, disrupt inflow into homelessness, and produce more racially equitable systems.

CS has been deeply engaged in the revitalization of the North Hartford Promise Zone (NHPZ) since 2010. In support of this work and CS’s mission CS’s Real Estate team is working to develop innovative and replicable models for transformative real estate development projects. The centerpiece of their work in the NHPZ is the $35M refurbishment of the Swift Factory, a former gold leaf manufacturing facility, which will help revitalize the community by helping to activate and scale local entrepreneurship, local employment, and health and wellness by offering affordable offices, commercial kitchens, and manufacturing spaces.

Community Solutions is also creating a first-of-its kind social impact housing model called the North Hartford Community Land Trust (NHCLT). The model is designed to address the four predominant housing issues facing community residents: poor quality housing, high rates of eviction, threats to long-term affordability, and inadequate property management.

The Graphic Design & Data Visualization Intern will work on-site in their office at the Swift Factory, alongside their Real Estate team. The intern will work full time, 40 hours per week for no more than 10 weeks, with a flexible starting date in June. If the intern’s school does not provide a stipend for internships, then CS will compensate at a rate of $15/hour. The intern will have access to multiple training and educational opportunities throughout the summer.
