Before shovels in the ground, Habitat needs laws and regulations that pave the way toward acquiring land, building efficiently, and keeping homeownership affordable for more people. Access to affordable housing depends on systemic support, and that systemic support relies on you – A Habitat advocate.
We have over 33 years of experience in providing affordable housing. By advocating on behalf of Habitat, you lend your voice to a movement that will establish smart housing policies and ensure a system that lets us bring homeownership to more people.
Housing affects everything, from healthcare to our schools. The effects of the affordable housing crisis surround us. But this issue is solvable.
Let lawmakers know you stand with families partnering with Habitat for Humanity to build a better future. Take a few minutes of your time to advocate for affordable housing. We need your help.

Let your legislators know that they need to support affordable housing in Central Florida. Urge them to stop sweeping funds from the Sadowski Trust Fund and make affordable housing a priority.
