Advocate

One of Habitat for Humanity’s goals is to influence adequate affordable housing solutions by changing systems, policies, and attitudes to achieve decent housing for all. Home is more than just a place where you rest your head. A home is a sense of stability. A sense of safety. A sense of accomplishment. It’s a place where people reconnect with family, friends, and their community. Through advocacy, Habitat volunteers and supporters can amplify our impact and increase access to decent, affordable housing.
