Advocacy

Building Stronger Communities, Together

Habitat Chesapeake is proud to support local, state, and federal initiatives that extend the dream of affordable homeownership to households of all income ranges. When you advocate with Habitat, you’re helping to change systems and policies in the U.S., and you’re working alongside people in your community and across the nation who care passionately about creating affordable homes and stronger communities. 

Habitat Chesapeake is also pleased to participate in Habitat for Humanity national campaigns, such as the Cost of Home campaign and Habitat on the Hill. Read our recap story about Habitat on the Hill 2022 here
