The Home is the Foundation: Catholic Charities USA Addresses Our Nation's Housing Crisis

In the words of Pope John Paul II, "a home is much more than a roof over one's head." It is "a place for building and seeking one's life."

The home is the very foundation for raising children, for seeking comfort, and for preparing oneself to participate in broader society through work, education, and civic engagement.

The issue brief Home is the Foundation illustrates the landscape of affordable housing in America and describes the current response of government, business, faith communities, and nonprofits such as Catholic Charities.
