Building on Faith: Making Poverty Housing History

Aired 2006-07. Presented by the National Council of Churches USA  

Providing a safe and secure home is a basic necessity for building a just and functional society. Today, nearly two billion people in the USA and throughout the world are without a home that provides adequate security, space and access to basic sanitary facilities.  This documentary highlighted groups like Habitat for Humanity and the “Let Justice Roll” alliance formed by the National Council of Churches and the Center for Community Change and profiled families who have obtained decent housing that is permanent and affordable.  The program followed the biblical perspective – God created a good world and desires all to enjoy its goodness.
