Nearly 19 million U.S. households today pay half or more of their income on a place to live.


That means 1 in 6 families are denied the personal and economic stability that safe, decent, and affordable housing provides. That means that 1 in 6 families are forced to make impossible choices. A safe home. Nutritious food on the table. Health care. Access to good schools. Reliable transportation. Which would you choose?


When the cost of home is your family’s future, the cost is too high. When the cost of home is any family’s future, that’s something none of us can afford. That’s why we’re joining hundreds of Habitat for Humanity organizations across the country today to launch our first national advocacy campaign: Cost of Home.

Here at Habitat we see the effects on our community when families are struggling to afford this basic need, and we're working hard to address it. 

Will you join us in advocating for our community?

We need your help to launch Cost of Home in the Wisconsin River Area!

Here’s what you can do to support the campaign right now:

  • Write or call your legislators, and tell them to support policies such as the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act of 2019 (AHCIA) and the Neighborhood Homes Investment Act (NHIA) to improve housing affordability. Use this pre-populated email to get you started

Take action to support the Cost of Home campaign today, and together we can help make the #CostOfHome something we all can afford.

Thank you for your support!
