World Habitat Day

Join Habitat for Humanity on World Habitat Day!

On World Habitat Day, Habitat for Humanity joins the United Nations and organizations around the world in raising awareness, educating, and mobilizing individuals and communities to take action on the current global housing crisis.

During #WorldHabitatDay, Habitat draws attention to the important role decent housing plays in removing barriers to opportunity, success and health that might have been part of a family’s life for years, if not generations.

Did you know that:

  • Virtually nowhere in the U.S. can a full-time employee earning minimum wage afford a one-bedroom apartment.
  • Better affordable living conditions lead to improved health, stronger childhood development, and the ability - and financial flexibility - to make forward-looking choices.
  • Good housing attracts economic investment and development.
  • Decent shelter contributes to thriving school systems, community organizations and civic activism. 

With your help, we can improve lives and communities.
