Build Louder

Shelter from rain, wind and sun is a basic human need.

Build Louder is a collection of Habitat for Humanity advocacy campaigns that focus on:

  • Changing U.S. housing systems, policies and attitudes.
  • Improving access to adequate and affordable housing worldwide.

Build Louder goals

  • Inspire advocates to take action.
  • Mobilize leadership.
  • Strengthen communities.
  • Reduce poverty.
  • Build hope for the secure future God intends for us all.

Act now:
We owe it to our children to make sure we do a better job of protecting them in the wake of the next disaster. Habitat for Humanity worked with Congress and the president to establish the National Commission on Children and Disasters to ensure that children are never an afterthought in a disaster again.
Ask Congress to pass the Child Safety, Care and Education Continuity Act
