Act now

More than 17 million U.S. households pay more than half of their income on a place to live. Every family deserves the chance to thrive. Though the Cost of Home campaign has concluded, the work continues.

Habitat will build on the successes of the Cost of Home campaign, confronting housing challenges head-on, so that everyone can have a decent place to call home. Help us make that possible.
