help habitat build louder

Advocates show up. They support the causes in which they believe, and work to influence community leaders to adopt policies and transform systems. Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity engages in affordable housing advocacy to ensure our leaders make informed decisions, facilitate connections between legislators and constituents, and empower homeowners and volunteers to make their voices heard. Greater Des Moines Habitat cannot do this alone; we ask for, and welcome, your voice.

the cost of home

Over the next five years, Habitat commits to mobilizing local Habitat organizations, partners, volunteers, and community members across the country to find the solutions and help create the policies that will allow 10 million individuals to meet their most basic needs. Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity is participating in this much needed advocacy campaign to ensure everyone can afford the cost of home.
