FACE THE HOUSING CRISIS™: A Community Charter for Collective Leadership

In this in-depth position paper, Habitat Orlando & Osceola acknowledges that affordable housing is not just a standalone challenge but a complex, interconnected issue that requires a comprehensive approach. It combines the principles of systems thinking, policy integration, and collective impact in recognition that effective solutions cannot be achieved through fragmented efforts. By bringing together stakeholders from diverse sectors and facilitating the long-term collaboration needed, we aim to create a unified front that can drive meaningful change.

At this critical time, we can sit on our hands or put them to work collectively. We invite you to raise your hand and pioneer the change needed to FACE THE HOUSING CRISIS™.

Sign up below to receive updates about our Aug. 16 event, where we will unveil this groundbreaking initiative, as well as ways you can get involved and how Habitat Orlando & Osceola is facing the housing crisis every day.

We are not alone in recognizing affordable housing as an anchor to community prosperity. In our Community Charter above, we propose a framework to support the scale and expanded impact of momentum realized in the last 10 years. The Cornerstone Housing™ Framework is neither a replication nor an alternative to the many initiatives that represent momentum propelling our proposal. By virtue of operating at the systems level in human and economic development, we propose an approach to build on these initiatives.


Do you have an affordable place to live? Even if your answer is yes, chances are high that someone you care about does not: Your child, nephew, friend, coworker, neighbor, child’s teacher, the chef at your favorite restaurant, your mail carrier. Tell us about how this crisis affects you, your loved ones, and your community. If you agree, we may share your story.
