Advocacy

Habitat for Humanity-Spokane advocates at the local, state, and federal levels to protect and expand policies and resources for affordable housing and homeownership opportunities in Spokane County. When you advocate on behalf of Habitat for Humanity, you join people in your own community and all over the world who support additional access to safe and affordable housing.

Habitat for Humanity serves as a voice for people in need of decent housing by working to change laws and shape policies that affect access to housing.

Our advocacy approach is based on decades of on-the-ground experience and policy expertise. In our deep understanding of housing and its role in providing opportunities for families, we seek to reform laws in a non-confrontational, nonpartisan way. Just like building, advocating for smart policies and systems is a way to create a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

Through our first U.S. advocacy campaign, Cost of Home, Habitat for Humanity is addressing the need for affordable housing by promoting policies that support expanding resources for affordable home production, increasing inclusive access to credit, enabling equitable access to land, and developing communities of opportunity.
