The quadruple bottom line: Nonprofit Housing Organizations in the United States: Variations, Vitality, and Values [version française] / Rachel Bratt. In "Mixité : an urban and housing issue? Mixing people, housing and activities as urban challenge of the future", 23ème colloque international de l'European Network for Housing Research (ENHR), organisé par le Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Solidarités, Sociétés, Territoires (LISST) à l'Université Toulouse II-Le Mirail, 5-8 juillet 2011.
Plénière 2: International perspectives on social enterprise and hybridity in housing organisations, 7 juillet 2011.
U.S. nonprofit housing organizations strive to meet the Quadruple Bottom Line, which encompasses the challenges presented by the private market, while serving targeted resident groups and neighborhoods, in an environmentally responsible manner. The paper assesses the extent to which a framework developed by Czischke, Gruis and Mullins captures the activities of U.S. nonprofit housing organizations. Further, given the workings of the private housing market, it examines the shared and conflicting values of U.S. nonprofit housing organizations and how the various components of the Quadruple Bottom Line interact with one another. This should contribute to a better understanding of why hybridization is a defining characteristic of the U.S. nonprofit social housing sector and to clearer policy directions.
