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 years, we commit 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.
