In the United States alone, 95 million people have housing problems. That’s about one-third of the entire population. From homelessness to underwater mortgages, insecure housing effects families in every community.
Fortunately, Habitat’s work around the world and here at home has shown that building homes does more than put a roof above families’ heads. In clean, decent, stable housing:
-Families can provide stability for their children.
-A family’s sense of dignity and pride grow.
-Health, physical safety, and security improve
-Educational and job prospects increase.
By taking the Pledge to End Poverty Housing you will add your voice to thousands of others calling on our civic leaders to help ensure a decent place to live for families all across America. Habitat needs caring, compassionate individuals like you as partners to help empower families and strengthen communities across the world.
