National Roof Over Your Head Day

The single largest investment that a person has is often their home. People spend thousands on their houses, pouring their paychecks and savings into its purchase and upkeep. National Roof Over Your Head Day is a day of appreciation for the roofs that we have over our heads.
Homelessness and poverty are growing problems in America and around the world. Millions of people spend their nights sleeping on the streets and feel helpless that they have nowhere to turn. There is much to be done to help with these rising issues. Learn more about projects going on in your community to combat homelessness.
So whether you own, lease, or rent your home, appreciate the roof you have over your head today!
