Communities across the United States are in short supply of affordable housing as home prices are rising faster than wages. In Washington State 1 in 7 families are paying more than half their income for housing, leaving them struggling for their basic needs. No one should have to choose between housing and their basic needs. When the cost of home is any family’s future, that is something none of us can afford.
We have joined Habitat for Humanity International and hundreds of other Habitat’s around the country in the “Cost of Home” campaign. Launched in June 2019, and over the next five years will find solutions and help create policies in four key areas: supply and preservation of affordable homes; access to credit; access to land; communities of opportunity.
Join us in advocating for affordable housing for every one.
