The United Nations has designated today as World Habitat Day 2013, to bring awareness to the dire need for quality affordable housing worldwide. You can do your part as a Twin Cities Habitat supporter by signing a petition telling Minnesota decision-makers how important affordable housing is to you.

Quality affordable housing benefits all of us. It is the foundation of stable families and strong communities – improving education, the economy, health, transportation, and the environment.

 

Housing solutions happen when we work together – non-profits, government agencies, businesses, congregations and individual citizens all have a role to play. Here are some great ways to get involved and stay informed:

  • Spread the word about affordable housing and share our Pledge to End Poverty Housing with your social networks:

Affordable housing programs make a difference in stabilizing communities #WorldHabitatDay http://bit.ly/ShelterReport13 

 

Pledge to End Poverty Housing with @tchabitat! #WorldHabitat Day

 

Suggested Facebook Share Copy (copy/paste into status field):
The need for affordable housing is great – for every family Twin Cities Habitat serves, they must turn ten eligible families away. Show your support of affordable housing solutions and celebrate World Habitat Day by signing Habitat’s Pledge to End Poverty Housing. Share on Facebook

 

  • Sign Up for Advocacy Alerts – Receive an email notification when affordable housing bills or legislation come up on a local, state or national level.

 

  • Become a Legislative Ambassador – Become a volunteer advocate and help educate the public officials in their district to ensure that they will make affordable housing a priority. You’ll receive a free training for this unique leadership opportunity.
