Housing is a human right.
Baltimore has tens of thousands of vacant homes, largely as a result of deindustrialization, racial segregation and redlining, and failed downtown development. We believe that every person deserves housing that is stable, permanently affordable, and community controlled.
Join the fight for Housing as a Human Right
We believe in a housing market that values non-speculative, permanently affordable housing for all. We believe that community land trusts are a model that can protect our communities’ right to housing.
We value education and learning. HON members have spent countless hours surveying vacant homes in East Baltimore, helping to inform our work and that of our allies. Come learn with us!
HON is a member of the Baltimore Housing Roundtable, where we are organizing to put public money and investment into housing that will benefit us all.
