Families all across the United States are paying too high a price to cover the cost of home. Rent and homeownership costs are skyrocketing, while wages are not keeping pace. Far too often, families struggle to make ends meet. Families are having to choose between a safe home, nutritious food, health care, access to good schools, reliable transportation, and other necessities. Which would you choose?

Your home shouldn’t cost you anywhere near half your paycheck.

Home shouldn’t cost you your health. Home shouldn’t cost you your kids’ education.

When the cost of home is your family’s future, the cost is too high.

When the cost of home is any family’s future, that’s something none of us can afford.

Everyone deserves to build the foundation for a strong, healthy future for themselves and their families

— no matter where they live or how much money they earn. Every family deserves the chance to thrive.

Help us make that possible. Help us make the #CostOfHome something we all can afford.
