Everyone Deserves to build the foundation for a stable, healthy future for themselves and their families - no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they earn.
More than 35 years ago, the United Nations General Assembly took an important step in promoting the idea that everyone deserves a decent place to live by declaring that the first Monday in October would be World Habitat Day. York Habitat for Humanity joins with our partners around the world to rededicate ourselves to recognizing the basic right to adequate shelter. Along with these partners, York Habitat states:
- Every one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.
- A decent place to live can remove barriers to opportunity, health, and success that might have been a part of a family's life for years - and in many cases - for generations.
- It is unacceptable that even before the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 17 million U.S. households were paying half or more of their income on housing. Now, the significant economic impacts of COVID-19 have made housing affordability out of reach for even more families.
On this World Habitat Day, York Habitat is asking for you to show your support and work towards providing low-income housing to families in need right here in York County.
