Which would you choose...?
Today, nearly 19 million households in the U.S. are paying half or more of their income on housing. That means 1 in 6 families are denied the personal and economic stability that safe, decent and affordable housing provides. Instead, 1 in 6 families are forced to make impossible choices.
That’s why Habitat for Humanity has launched the Cost of Home campaign. Over the next five the Habitat network commits to mobilizing individuals across the country to find the solutions and help create the policies at the local, state and federal levels that will improve home affordability for 10 million people. And we know we can’t do this alone.
Join us as a Cost of Home Advocate, and participate in a training program that will make the connection between racial justice and housing and give you tangible next steps for how you can advocate at the local, state, and national levels! Visit our group on facebook for more information!
