Proud Ground creates permanently affordable homeownership opportunities for first-time homebuyers using the Community Land Trust model. Our investment ensures working families can afford to live in their community and keep their neighborhood affordable.
Bottom Line for Portland
Proud Ground has helped more than 350 working families achieve the dream of homeownership. Each year, Proud Ground educates over 200 first-time homebuyers and grows its 280-home portfolio. These homes stay affordable forever, ensuring generations of homebuyers have access to affordable homes for years to come.
“As I reflect on my journey toward homeownership, I am amazed at how far I’ve come. Before, I was stuck in the cycle of renting, but after working with Proud Ground, I am now the first homeowner in my family in four generations. I broke the cycle of poverty!”
