housing

THE NEED
Over 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing and 100 million are homeless.

THE SOLUTION
The key to sustainable shelter is providing adequate, secure, affordable housing options to the poor.

PARTNERS
Our housing partners seek to eliminate poverty-housing and homelessness, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Partners provide medium to long-term shelter solutions for internationally displaced persons, refugees and disaster victims. They also are involved in infrastructure projects (schools, clinics, roads, bridges, water supply systems, etc.), community development and emergency relief distribution.

$10 can buy a box of nails for a housing project.

$75 could provide an entire neighborhood with a permanent, sustainable water filtration system.
$250 can save lives by enabling a family to build a new latrine and receive public health training.
$500 can provide a family with the training, tools, and materials to repair and weatherize their shelter.
