Don't make Sydney leave.


Don't make
Sydney leave.

Portland Mayor Charlie Hales recently announced a housing state of emergency in Portland, as too many families can no longer afford to live here.  These are hardworking families like Sydney’s, whose mom works as a bank teller.  They love their northeast Portland neighborhood, but their apartment’s rent just went up. They are worried because they know they can’t afford a decent place in their current neighborhood, but Sydney doesn’t want to leave her school that she loves.

Today, you can give Sydney and her mom the opportunity to stay.  With your gift to Habitat you are helping local families build and then buy decent, healthy, affordable Habitat homes, so they are able to grow and thrive without being worried about moving again and again, chasing affordable rent.

And today, your donation will be doubled thanks to a matching gift from Wells Fargo!

Please consider a donation to Habitat, and give Sydney the opportunity to stay.
