On June 23rd, Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East dedicated two homes on Southeast Bush St. two the Aung/Shwe and Nguyen/Tran families. These two families received the keys and now begin to move into the homes they’ve purchased with a 0%-interest loan after completing 500 hours of sweat equity each.

Habitat acquired these two homes in 2014 and completed numerous repairs including new insulation, water heater, energy-efficient appliances, mold mitigation and removal, and landscaping.

In collaboration with community partners, home sponsors and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Habitat for Humanity acquires foreclosed, abandoned, and current low-cost housing stalk as part of our investment in revitalizing entire neighborhoods. Habitat is able to rehabilitate empty houses into simple, decent homes for qualified low-income families. We’re proud to have the Aung/Shwe and Nguyen/Tran families in the Habitat program, and congratulate them on their hard work toward becoming homeowners!
