Advocacy.jpg

At Habitat, we're a community in action.


Before shovels in the ground, Habitat needs laws and regulations that pave the way toward acquiring land, building efficiently, and keeping homeownership affordable for more people. Access to affordable housing depends on systemic support, and that systemic support depends on you - a Habitat advocate.

We have over 32 years’ experience in the affordable housing space, and we take a thoughtful, comprehensive, and forward-looking approach to advocacy. By advocating on behalf of Habitat, you lend your voice to a movement that will instate smart housing policy and a system that lets us bring homeownership within reach of more people.

Sign up for our advocacy alerts to receive more information about affordable housing issues and opportunities to further Habitat's mission.
