Cost of Home
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.
When the cost of home is your family’s future, the cost is too high. And when the cost of home is any family’s future, that’s something none of us can afford.
We need your help to launch Cost of Home in North Carolina! Here’s what you can do to support the campaign right now:
- Post on social media, using #CostOfHome and #CostofHomeNC, tag us [@HabitatNC] and link to Habitat’s Cost of Home website, habitat.org/costofhome.
- Write or call your legislators and tell them to support policies to improve housing affordability. Use this pre-populated email to get you started!
- Keep an eye out for future advocacy and Cost of Home events in your area, like Habitat NC’s annual Legislative Day at the North Carolina Legislative Building in the spring.
- Tell three friends about the campaign, either in person or by sending them a link to this page.
Take action to support the Cost of Home campaign today, and together we can help make the #CostOfHome something we ALL can afford.
