Welcome to the Making Housing Ministries and Community Happen Website!

Making Housing Ministries and Community Happen: Faith-Based Affordable Housing Models.
Making Housing Ministries and Community Happen works with churches to bring about housing justice in the United States.
 
The growing housing crisis cries out for solutions that work. As many as 3.5 million Americans experience homelessness each year, half of them women and children. One in four renters spends more than half of their income on rent and utilities (more than 30 percent is considered unaffordable). With record foreclosures and 28 percent of homes “underwater,” middle- and low-income homeowners are suffering.

Many congregations want to address this daunting problem yet feel powerless and uncertain about what to do. The good news is that churches are effectively addressing the housing crisis from Washington State to New York City—where an alliance of sixty churches has built five thousand homes for low-income homeowners, with virtually no government funding or foreclosures.

We hope this website will help you learn more about how we serve our neighbors through Making Housing Ministries and Community Happen.
