Advocacy

Before shovels ever hit the ground, Lexington Habitat for Humanity needs laws and regulations that pave the way toward acquiring land, building efficiently, and keeping homeownership affordable for more people. Access to affordable housing depends on systemic support, and that systemic support depends on you - a Lexington Habitat advocate. We have over 30 years of experience in the affordable housing space, and we take a thoughtful approach to advocacy. By advocating on behalf of Lexington Habitat, you lend your voice to a movement that will establish smart housing policy and a system that lets us bring quality, affordable housing within reach of more people.
