Are you paying taxes in Oregon? Consider a charitable donation to Habitat for Humanity by designating your tax refunds!
Last year Habitat Portland/Metro East provided affordable homeownership and repairs to 52 hardworking families in Portland and Gresham. Habitat homes are sold with an affordable mortgage and no down payment, with the families responsible for closing costs of about $2,000. With each mortgage payment, the generosity of volunteers, donors and in-kind contributors will be paid forward for years to come.
