CNN’s Impact Your World is an empowerment initiative that gives people an opportunity to interact with and respond to the news. CNN connects our worldwide audience to the interests, passions and causes they care about through the people and stories covered by our award-winning journalists as well as by those presented by prominent figures and celebrities.

It’s a movement inspired by the audience’s desire to be a part of the solution as they consume CNN news coverage on television, online and on their mobile devices. People are informed and connected to organizations that allow them to act easily and on demand, and then share with the CNN community their own personal impact on the world.

Shelters to Shutters is a nonprofit organization that provides housing and employment opportunities to the homeless by educating and engaging real estate/property management leaders and encouraging action within their communities. Shelters to Shutters brings together apartment industry and real estate professionals across the country who are committed to offering opportunity and economic independence to individuals facing homelessness. With more than 105 lives changed, our program is successful in not only assisting individuals and families who have faced homelessness but also helps the industry meet a growing business need — identifying and retaining good employees.
