This is fine if you want all of the files in /home to be writable. If
there are files that should not be writable, you can change ownership of
*all* of the directories only with:

# cd /home
# find . -type d -exec chown www-data {} \;


or

change write privileges with chmod:


# cd /home
# find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;


Doing either of these can be a security risk. You should consider only
giving privileges to write to files and directories that should be
writable by the web server (like an "uploads" or "images" directory). To
do this you have to manually change them one by one.
