Habitat for Humanity participates in this international event because we know that adequate shelter is critical to improved opportunities, health and education.
Did you know that:
• About 1 in 4 people live in substandard housing. If action isn’t taken, that number will grow to 2 out of 5 — the equivalent of 3 billion people — by 2030.
• Habitat works in nearly 1,400 communities across the U.S. and in over 70 countries.
• Through Habitat’s work each day, nearly 5,000 people find strength, stability and independence through safe, decent and affordable shelter.
With your help, we can improve lives and communities — at home and around the globe. Follow our World Habitat Day event on Facebook to stay tuned for ways to help make a difference in the living conditions for families around the world.
