Tour de Habitat 2015

September 26

Saturday, September 26, 2015 Albany, NY Presented by   From 2008 until 2011, Tour de Habitat raised money to build homes and revitalize communities in the Capital District. This year, the Tour is back in action!   Tour de Habitat riders are superheroes. They put on their helmets and ride some serious miles to raise money to transform communities. With your support, Habitat for Humanity will build and rehabilitate more homes than ever before. We will bring neglected neighborhoods back to life.

World Habitat Day

October 5

Save the date! World Habitat Day Monday, October 5 World Habitat Day is the one day set aside annually to recognize the basic right of all humanity to adequate shelter, and to encourage grassroots action toward ending poverty housing. The United Nations General Assembly declared in 1985 that the first Monday in October would be World Habitat Day, so on Monday, Oct. 5, 2015, as in years past, Habitat for Humanity joins with our partners around the world to rededicate ourselves to a world where everyone has a decent place to live. The facts are astounding: Around the world, 1.6 billion people live in inadequate shelter. More than 100 million people worldwide are homeless. One in 4 lives in conditions that are harmful to health, safety, prosperity and opportunity. Most studies conclude that one-third of homeless people in the U.S. are children. The prognosis is alarming: By 2030, an additional 3 billion people will  need access to housing, requiring 96,150 new affordable units every day to meet the need. By 2050, 70 percent of the world’s population will be living in urban areas, causing slums and unplanned settlements to swell.
