Become a Habitat for Humanity Advocate
When you advocate on behalf of Habitat for Humanity, you will join people in your own community and all over the world who are advocating for additional access to safe and affordable housing.
Rules and regulations about land and building have a major effect on access to housing. In places where there are smart policies in place, there is more access to decent housing. In other places where there are counterproductive policies and systems, there can be barriers that make it difficult for people to find land for construction, build the home itself or be able to afford a place to live.
Habitat for Humanity serves as a voice for people in need of decent housing by working to change laws and shape policies that affect access to housing.
Our advocacy approach is based on decades of on-the-ground experience and policy expertise. With our deep understanding of housing and its role in providing opportunities for families, we seek to reform laws in a non-confrontational, nonpartisan way. Just like building, advocating for smart policies and systems is a way to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Help us protect programs that support Habitat. All of the key federal programs that support our nationwide work are in danger of being eliminated by the proposed fiscal year 2018 budget. Take action to urge Congress to support funding for these essential programs.
