In 1985, the United Nations declared the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day acknowledging the need for simple and decent shelter for people around the world. Habitat for Humanity knows that good housing and good housing policies are the key to creating safe and strong communities.
This year’s theme for World Habitat Day is “Many Homes, One Community.” Habitat for Humanity for San Luis Obispo County will be celebrating this special day and our progress in providing stronger communities through affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization.
