Today marks the dedication of Habitat’s 500,000th home!  And Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East has contributed to this amazing milestone, with over 200 homes build, right here, in our community.

In Maai Mahiu, Kenya, a joyful community is dedicating Habitat’s 500,000th home, while in Paterson, New Jersey, despite recent flooding, a group is busy raising the walls on the 500,001st.  And here in our community, we are working hard to increase our homebuilding efforts by 50%, building 30 homes annually in the Portland/Gresham area.

So let’s honor these milestones, and everyone who has supported Habitat’s affordable housing efforts, and our commitment to serving even more families in the future.
