National Homeownership Month is celebrated in the United States every June to raise awareness about the benefits of owning a home, and the importance of making homeownership more attainable for all Americans.

Homeownership provides stability and security, and allows families to establish roots in a community. It is one of the best tools we have to create more equity in housing, as it gives families an opportunity to build assets and provide for their future. Studies also show that homeowners are healthier, more engaged in their neighborhoods, and their children have better educational outcomes.
