Housing

These groups work toward a world where everybody has a place they can call home, where they can be safe and secure.

Groups exist to tackle homelessness and provide support for those who are homeless, and to create and improve access to new homes to alleviate the housing crisis. Others aim to protect tenants’ rights, working toward laws that protect against abusive or neglectful landlords.

Learn more about housing issues, bad housing, legal issues surrounding housing, and what can be done to alleviate homelessness.
