Broadening the Opportunity Starts at Home Movement

Building a Broad Opportunity Starts at Home Coalition of Leaders in Education, Healthcare, Civil Rights, Anti-Poverty, Faith-Based & Other Sectors

On August 16, 2018, the Opportunity Starts at Home multi-sector affordable housing campaign hosted its first webinar titled “Broadening the Housing Movement: Learn more about the Opportunity Starts at Home Campaign.” The webinar provides information on the campaign’s progress to-date in building a broad coalition of leaders in:
  • education,
  • healthcare,
  • civil rights,
  • antipoverty,
  • faith-based, and
  • other sectors to advocate for affordable homes.
The campaign’s Steering Committee determines:
  • short- and long-term plans;
  • policy advocacy goals;
  • ways to engage with the campaign; and
  • more.
The webinar featured:
  • Greg Payne, director of the Maine Affordable Housing Coalition and chair of the NLIHC board of directors, shares how the national campaign is supporting Maine’s multi-sector campaign called Maine Together.
  • The webinar also featured NLIHC President and CEO Diane Yentel, Campaign Director Mike Koprowski, and Campaign Coordinator Chantelle Wilkinson.
