Habitat for Humanity believes 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 78 people who purchased affordable Habitat homes or received 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.
“It has been blessing after blessing. I don’t know where we would have been if we didn’t have Habitat. None of this would have been possible.” —Mel, Habitat homeowner
