Habitat magazine

Our Habitat magazine illustrates the mission at the center of all our work – ensuring people in our communities and around the world can achieve the safety and stability of affordable homeownership.

We see neighborhoods build and rebuild and follow families as they transform their lives with decent, affordable housing.

We celebrate housing policy successes achieved by local Habitats, volunteers and communities through our advocacy efforts. Together, we continue to work to fight for equity in the housing sector and rectify the effects of the unjust housing policies that persist today. 

In every issue, the magazine captures the life-changing impact and incredible spirit of families, volunteers, advocates and partners – including you

You make our work possible every day. With your support, we can help families build healthier, more stable lives through affordable housing.
