|Subject:||Proposed Resolution-"World Habitat Day"|
|I am planning to introduce a resolution recognizing October 2, 2017, as "World Habitat Day" in Pennsylvania.
Since its founding in 1976, Habitat for Humanity has helped build or repair more than 800,000 houses and has served more than 9.8 million people around the world.
The organization is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live.
The houses built offer simple, decent and affordable homes to low-income families around the world.
Habitat for Humanity is needed to help eliminate poverty by providing shelter to those in need; and families left homeless by natural disasters, war and civil unrest often face dire housing situations as they struggle to rebuild their lives.
Habitat for Humanity's Disaster Response Program provides shelter and housing solution to help these families recover.
Please join me in cosponsoring this resolution.
Introduced as HR533
