What Home Means to Me

What Home Means to Me 2020 Poster Contest

Fargo Housing is participating in the 2021 What Home Means to Me poster contest! The contest, hosted by NAHRO’s Housing America campaign, is held each year for children and young adults residing in affordable housing and community developments. Participants are encouraged to create posters and accompanying statements that reflect the national theme of “What Home Means to Me.”

I am grateful where I live because I have a roof over my head and a safe place to go when I have a bad day. I don’t care if I live in a mansion or an old house because I have my gamily there. Family and love is all that matters. There are rich people out there who have their huge house and everything they want, but they live a lonely life and wish they had some company. .

I did this scenery because it means home to me, because beaches calm you down from all the stuff in life. However the beach isn’t perfect, but people can live with it because home is EVERYTHING!!! So, really home means to me a nice peaceful life full of problems, but people can come out of!
