Advocacy is an essential part of our mission at Dallas Habitat for Humanity. We advocate for affordable housing not only in Dallas but at the state and national levels too. By serving as an advocate on numerous levels, Dallas Habitat strives to make an even greater impact on the affordability crisis in North Texas and across the nation.
ADVOCACY AND DALLAS HABITAT
Cost of Home Campaign: At Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity, we believe that no one should have to pay anywhere near half their paycheck on housing costs. However, nearly 19 million U.S. households are faced with this reality. Help us make affordable housing a reality for these households nationwide and make the #CostOfHome something we all can afford.

Having a Home Matters: Homeownership imparts substantial social and community benefits. It provides families an opportunity to accumulate wealth and build a stable future. Homeownership is the basis for a number of positive social, economic, family and civic outcomes. It lowers crime rates in communities, lessens welfare dependency, induces higher civic and volunteer participation and improves health care outcomes and boosts the educational performance of children.
