A Stable & Purposeful
Life Begins with Home.

When we have a home that meets our needs, we can find stability and security that support our health, well-being, and livelihood.

Home is Where it all starts

Envisions A Future Where Every Arizonan Has A Place to Be at Home.

To build an Arizona where we all have a place to be at home, Home is where it all starts focuses on:

  • Transforming narratives around housing to focus on the importance of every Arizonan having a home that meets
    their needs.
  • Creating a network of supporters for housing solutions that meet people’s needs.
  • Making housing options that fit people’s needs a reality for more people.



To achieve these outcomes, we encourage Arizonans to:

  • Change how you talk about housing.
  • Read our data and learn about the impact of homes that meet all of our needs.
  • Support efforts that bring affordable rents and mortgages into your neighborhood or community.
  • Stay informed on policies that put homes within everyone’s reach.
  • Become engaged and vocal about your support for housing legislation.
  • Support decision makers who are thoughtful and knowledgeable about housing-related issues.

Change How You Talk About Housing

  • Say “affordable rents and mortgages,” “homes that meet our needs,” or “homes within reach,” instead of “affordable housing.”

  • Why does it matter? When people hear the term “affordable housing”, they often think of a particular “type” of housing, and the “type” of neighborhood they’ve learned to associate that housing with. It shuts down debate rather than opens up conversations about what is possible.

  • In reality, the concept of a home with a rent or mortgage payment we can afford is something we can all relate to. It also takes many different forms; it is not just one type of housing for one type of person or community.
