NLIHC Members are the Key!

September is Membership Month at NLIHC! This year we are celebrating the strength and power of our membership. Our members are the key to our strength – members “open doors” for the Coalition to policy victories, to greater dialogue and collaboration, to quality data and reports, and to the growing movement for more affordable homes for those most in need.

NLIHC members form an impressive network of committed housing and social justice advocates across the nation. With over 1,000 dedicated individual and organizational members nationwide, we are confident that together, with sustained advocacy, we can end homelessness and housing poverty in America once and for all.

NLIHC is committed to our members! We ensure they have a voice in the Coalition and the support they need to make the case for federal affordable housing solutions. Members also receive benefits like a hard copy of the NLIHC Advocate’s Guide, an opportunity to provide input to NLIHC’s policy priorities, and a discount at our annual Housing Policy Forum. 

By recruiting new NLIHC members this month, our Coalition for affordable homes will grow even stronger!
