Home Matters

On March 12, 2013, Arbor Housing and Development helped launch a new national movement called "Home Matters", which aims to build public support for the essential role that Home plays as the bedrock for thriving lives, families, and a stronger nation. "Home Matters" is spearheaded by National NeighborWorks Association - of which Arbor is a member - along with a coast-to-coast coalition of housing and community development organizations, other nonprofits, companies, and the public at large.

As it expands, "Home Matters" will go beyond housing and illuminate the connections between stable housing and other important facets of American life such as:

  • Individual Success: Home recharges adults and children alike for the day ahead.
  • Education: Children in stable homes learn and achieve more in school.
  • Health: Healthy habits take root more easily in stable affordable homes.
  • Public Safety: Stable homes make communities safer.
  • A Strong Economy: Homes that are affordable are crucial to a vibrant job-generating economy.
