Home is the Key

Home is the Key

In these unprecedented times of “stay at home” orders and social distancing during the COVID-19 crisis, HOME has never had more meaning—particularly for low-income families and the most vulnerable in our society. The public health crisis will become an economic crisis and housing challenges will only escalate. Now, more than ever, we are committed to battling the affordable housing emergency for the families and communities we serve. We hope you will continue to support us and our mission.

We believe that home is the foundation for our lives, and it should provide an atmosphere of contentment and calm where individuals can thrive. Everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to call home.

Yet for many families in the United States, the concept of home seems out of reach. Often, this is a result of families living in inadequate conditions or paying rent beyond their means. Home has become a place families need to escape from, rather than escape to.

In April, the nationwide Home is the Key campaign brings together sponsors, community leaders and supporters to unlock futures and change lives so that even more families have access to decent housing.

Each year through Home is the Key, we hope to create an outpouring of generosity. We hope to see the doors of opportunity open in partnership with people in search of strength, stability and self-reliance.

You can help us continue to unlock the future for families by spreading the message that #HomeIsTheKey.

By supporting our Home is the Key cause, you aren’t just improving statistics or donating to an organization. You are eliminating barriers and giving families greater independence.

When we join together to provide access to decent housing opportunities, the effects can be felt across entire communities. After all, it takes a thriving community of people to build thriving neighborhoods. You are touching the lives of real people working toward strength, stability and self-reliance.
