World Habitat Day - October 7th

Happy World Habitat Day!

What is significant about this holiday? We’re glad you asked! Created by the United Nations in 1985, World Habitat Day "reflects on the state of our towns and cities and the basic right of all to adequate shelter. It is also intended to remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat.”

Habitat’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent, affordable place to live. We partner with other Habitat affiliates around the globe, working year-round to eliminate sub-standard housing.
