Vote for Homes

Get ready for the 2014 elections!

Vote for Homes! Coalition is a nonpartisan advocacy effort focused on the issues of affordable housing, living-wage jobs, and quality services in Philadelphia. Since 1999, Vote for Homes! has registered more than 14,500 voters and mobilized thousands to vote. You can join us! Fill out the Vote for Homes! Coalition Sponsor Contribution Form.

The Vote for Homes! Coalition created a nonpartisan Voters Guide for the 2014 Pennsylvania Governors race which was published in the September issue of One Step Away. Pennsylvania's gubernatorial candidates, Tom Corbett and Tom Wolf, were asked to provide 75-word answers to our questions regarding critical issues: Ending Homelessness, Affordable Housing, Economic Recovery & Jobs, General Assistance, Prison Release & Homelessness, and Health Care. The candidates full responses can be view below.
