Launch of Housing Justice

posted on 27 November 2003
Speaking after the launch of Housing Justice, the new Christian housing charity, formed by the merger of the Catholic Housing Aid Society and the Churches National Housing Coalition, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, said

' To have somewhere we call home is a fundamental part of our human dignity. Home is the place where we build our families and find the space to develop alongside friends and loved ones. To be deprived of such a basic necessity is to feel less than human.'

' A just society must care for all its members, but especially those in most need. As Christians and Catholics we have a special responsibility to work on behalf of homeless people. We must be their advocates, and we must do everything we can to provide for their needs, both practical and spiritual.

' This is what Housing Justice is all about and why I warmly welcome its launch. By working together as Christians we will have greater impact. We want everyone who wants a home to have one.'
