World Habitat Day

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

 

Today is World Habitat Day. It 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. Board of Directors President Suzanne Scharfenberg says the Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity joined with partners to rededicate themselves to a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Shcharfenberg says it’s the 30thAnniversary and they are still taking applications from families until October 15th. She adds that their agency is in need of more support. Habitat for Humanity Partner Alicia Veal is looking forward to getting into her own home. The United Nations General Assembly declared in 1985 that the first Monday in October would be World Habitat Day.
