Give Housing a Voice artwork


We believe housing is a broad spectrum and everyone is on it.  You might find yourself at various places within this continuum throughout your life.  Depending on life circumstances, you could be homeless, under-housed, cost burdened, downsizing, transitioning, housed, or set for life.

In New York State, every community has the right to decide what affordable housing models work best for that community.  “Give Housing a Voice” is an awareness-advocacy campaign centered on the importance of affordable housing.  Our mission is to encourage and empower people to make change happen through community development.

We have compiled talking points, resources and strategies to help you address the challenge, to change the discourse and to support affordable housing in your community.  We are working together to “Give Housing a Voice.”  With compelling facts and statements, you can start the conversation to help forward housing options and planning in your community.  Click on the links below to access our assembled toolkits and learn more about how affordable housing can help each:

Homeowners                                                  Renters

Seniors                                                             Students & Teachers

Veterans                                                          Businesses & Employers

The Disabled/Special Needs                     Homeless Persons

Community Leaders                                     Artist 

For instance, if you are a senior looking for affordable housing on a fixed income, you can direct the addition of affordable housing to your town’s housing stock. Or, if you are a town supervisor ready to raise the conversation about a new project in your community. You can bring resources to the table and set up a task force.

“Home Matters” to all of us. Give Housing a Voice.
