Today is World Habitat Day. Millions of people live in substandard housing, and in particular children are more likely to develop diseases and less likely to graduate from school when they live in poor housing conditions. But this isn't just in developing countries in Africa or Asia, it's here in the United States, too.
There are lots of way to support Habitat for Humanity. Check for your local affiliate to get involved, either by volunteering or donating or both.
