The Kemp Challenge to
End Homelessness and Dependence
Dedicated to the Memory of Jack Kemp


Jack Kemp was a man of principles, and courage, who is sadly missed today for his combined advocacy for the free-market and civil rights.  

As CEO of Habitat for Humanity, he raised $596M for his campaign, “More than Houses,” and opened 100 Habitat offices worldwide using %AYE, which he learned of from our CEO, Brock d’Avignon.  

A professional quarterback who learned the value of leadership, teamwork, equality and competition; a leader in Congress who knew the power of ideas, human capital, and opportunity; and a Secretary of Housing and Republican Vice Presidential candidate who spoke passionately of the





  

 power of free markets and free people, and the history yet to be written of the free world.

"Throughout his career, Jack Kemp transferred lessons and values from the playing field to the political arena. He stood for inclusiveness, engagement and encouragement. He drew support and earned the respect of Americans from all walks of life because he lived his philosophy of principled pragmatism, friendly strife, empowering others and, especially, reaching out to those who had not yet attained the American Dream.


Jack Kemp’s vision of the future was rooted firmly in the “self-evident” truths set forth in America’s founding documents: from the signers of the Declaration of Independence who proclaimed that “all men are created equal [and] endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” to the ratifiers of the U.S. Constitution who aimed “to secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity.” Abraham Lincoln said our Founders wrote these words to serve as “a beacon to guide their children and their children’s children, and the countless myriads who should inhabit the earth in other ages.” Jack Kemp was a man who held that beacon of freedom high."
