Become A Housing Hero!
In addition to building and preserving safe, quality, and affordable homes, Twin Cities Habitat, through our Advocacy Program, also strives to change the systems that lead to poverty housing. While Twin Cities Habitat has an enormous and profound impact when partnering with families, the need for affordable housing is much bigger than we can solve by our programs alone. To achieve our mission and multiply our impact, we are engaging supporters in the work of increasing the supply of housing at every level of the housing continuum – emergency shelter, supportive housing, rental, and homeownership.
We invite you to become a Housing Hero and join us in advocating for specific legislation and spreading the word that everyone needs a place they can afford to call home. We believe that housing advocates are true super heroes. More than 14,000 Minnesotans are homeless on any given day, and more than 600,000 households in MN pay more than they can afford for housing. We are grateful to the thousands of Twin Cities Habitat supporters who do not sit by while members of their community struggle to afford a home, but instead raise their voice and their hammers in response. We hope you will join the Housing Heroes and sign our petition today.
Join the call for affordable housing as a Housing Hero from your own home. You will get not-too-frequent email updates with easy ways to email your legislator. Together we can have a huge impact!
