Proud Ground believes that everyone should be able to afford to live in their community of choice. That’s why Proud Ground creates permanently affordable homeownership opportunities for first-time homebuyers throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Bottom Line for Portland
Most Americans in the U.S. build wealth through homeownership. But generations of families with low incomes and a disproportionate number of households of color have been locked out of homeownership. Proud Ground has helped 350 families like these become first-time homeowners and maintain permanent affordability for future generations.
Oregon Public House will match up to $1,000 in donations and provide donors with 10 percent off their purchase. Donors of $100 or more will receive a yearlong punch card good for one free beverage each month.
“For many families, homeownership represents the ‘American Dream.’ However, that dream is often out of reach. Proud Ground has made that dream a reality for our community.” —Victor Caesar, Proud Ground board member
