The Home Project

Addressing Housing Insecurity
The Home Project is Zillow Group’s marquee social impact program that aims to address challenges around housing insecurity. Our goal is to support individuals and families who are often just one paycheck, one medical event, or one unexpected expense away from homelessness. We envision a world where everyone—regardless of economic circumstance—has access to the resources that can help them find a place to call home.

Our Pledge
We are pledging up to $5 million in cash and in-kind contributions over the next five years to support vulnerable families.

Community Partnerships
Zillow Group is partnering with a local nonprofit organization in each city where we have offices. These Community Partners are doing important work to support people who are vulnerable to falling into housing insecurity and those who need help climbing out of it.

To date, we have identified partners in Seattle, New York, and Irvine. We expect to develop partnerships in the rest of our offices in 2018. Community Partners receive a $25,000 philanthropic contribution from Zillow Group as well as in-kind company resources.

Neighborhood Ambassadors
Zillow Group employees are passionate about giving back to the communities where we live and work. Our Neighborhood Ambassadors program allows for employees to nominate a nonprofit they love that aligns with The Home Project’s mission to receive a $1,500 contribution and coordinate a volunteer project. Neighborhood Ambassadors are selected from across all our offices each quarter.

In-Kind Services and Product Contributions
Zillow Group is uniquely positioned to assist consumers and nonprofit organizations as they navigate issues around housing insecurity. Our talent, data, and resources are helping people find their way home, and we are excited to find ways to share these in-kind contributions with the greater community.

As part of our pledge, we are leveraging various aspects of our business — from product development, to economic research, to public affairs and marketing support — to raise awareness about housing insecurity and create solutions to address the unique needs of our Community Partners and those who are housing vulnerable.

One great example is Zillow Hack Week and Trulia Innovation Week. Each quarter, Zillow Group companies gather developers to compete for internal prizes and recognition by hacking out innovative solutions and products. Prizes are awarded to teams who create solutions that have a positive social impact. Our employees are eager to help conceptualize, design and create solutions that can solve problems facing our communities, especially housing insecurity.
