World Habitat Day 2017

World Habitat Day 2017

More than 30 years ago, the United Nations General Assembly took an important step in promoting the idea that everyone deserves a decent place to live by declaring that the first Monday in October would be World Habitat Day.

 

Every year Habitat for Humanity joins our partners around the world to rededicate ourselves to recognizing the basic right of everyone to adequate shelter. Habitat for Humanity asks everyone to join together as one global network in communicating the message that every one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future, and that a decent place to live can remove barriers to opportunity, health and success that might have been part of a family’s life for years, and in many cases for generations.

Let us embrace the cultural differences, break down the barriers and join hands in a Prayer Service on Monday, October 2, 2017. Gather with us at 919 12th St. NE, Cedar Rapids at 5:30 p.m.
