Habitat for Humanity believes that everyone deserves a decent, affordable place to live. People in the Portland metro region partner with Habitat to build or improve a place they can call home and pay an affordable mortgage.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, Habitat partnered with 129 people who purchased affordable Habitat homes or received critical home repairs. This builds strength, stability and financial independence. Ninety-two percent of Oregon kids who grow up in a Habitat home graduate from high school. Seventy-nine percent who previously had housing-related illnesses no longer experience symptoms.
“Having my own house makes me feel like I have something that I can leave to my daughters in the future. It makes me feel great, because they won’t have to move and they’re going to have stability in the future.”
