Home is the Key

Everyone deserves the security and stability of a decent home that they can afford.

Home should be a refuge, a safe place to rest, to make memories that will last a lifetime, to watch children grow. But, for too many, that isn’t the case. There isn’t any one obstacle to affordable homeownership — it can be a disaster or an unexpected diagnosis, entrenched discrimination or an unfolding financial crisis. But there is one key to unlocking a brighter future: home.

And that’s why we work to break down barriers and bring people together — to tear down those obstacles and build a world where everyone, no matter who we are or where we come from, has a decent place to live. A safe, decent and affordable place to call home can free a homeowner from financial instability, from stress, from having to make impossible choices between essential needs. A safe, decent and affordable home can create opportunity and open up a world of possibility, a world of equity, of fairness, of better health and stronger communities. Together, we can build that world.

Each April, our Home is the Key campaign reminds us all of the importance of home and draws on the strength and support of you – Habitat’s tremendous community – to help more families in need of affordable housing. Support Habitat today!
