The success of our organization depends on using social media to engage a nationwide constituency. Without your help, we cannot reach, inform, and motivate our constituency to act together. Your skills will empower us to use social media as a tool to both educate and activate.
We currently have a website, Facebook page (623 followers) and regular traffic which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a part-time communications associate, write-ups about our current programs and activities and the ability to provide any other information you need.
Our mission is to promote, represent, preserve and enhance the rights and interests of the 17 million people living in manufactured (mobile) homes throughout the United States, including the nation's estimated 55,000 park communities. Reflecting our nationwide mission, our monthly board meetings bring together home owners from ten states.
We are the nation-wide membership based organization representing and advocating for manufactured home owners. Mission: The mission of the National Manufactured Home Owners Association (NMHOA) is to promote, represent, preserve, and enhance the rights and interests of manufactured home-owners throughout the United States.
*17 million people, in the United States, live in manufactured homes *There are approximately 6.8 million manufactured homes in the U.S and 2.9 million of them (43%) are situated in land lease (privately owned) communities *In many states manufactured homes are still considered "chattel" and therefore people purchasing manufactured homes do not qualify for the standard financing/loan products or other purchasing safeguards that people purchasing stick built homes have available to them *While most states have statutes that govern the relationship between community owners and home owners, many of these laws are weak, not enforceable, and not drafted in such a way as to provide security of tenure for manufactured home owners. * Manufactured housing provides unsubsidized affordable homeownership opportunities for millions of seniors and young families, yet there are very few protections in place to guarantee the long term preservation of manufactured housing communities. *Some manufactured housing community owners deny their residents the right to form home owners' associations, the right to inform their neighbors of their rights under state law, and in other ways restrict their constitutional rights.
