A day for grassroots action throughout the world, starting in your community.

In December 1985, the United Nations General Assembly declared the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day.

The purpose

  • To call attention to the need for better shelter around the world.
  • To let it be known that affordable, adequate housing should be a priority everywhere.
  • To change the systems, policies and attitudes that lead to poverty housing, and involve partners in solutions.

World Habitat Day is on Monday, Oct. 3, 2016.

Habitat for Humanity supporters will join with supporters of adequate shelter around the globe will participate in special activities that highlight the need for safe, decent and affordable shelter.

By advocating for universal decent housing, we seek to alter the systems that reinforce poverty housing and to make affordable housing a reality for all.

Be a part of it by taking action with us.
