Before moving into their Habitat for Humanity home in NE Portland, Lizet and her son Alan moved six times, chasing affordable rent. Eventually arriving in Portland via North Carolina, they stayed with relatives when they couldn’t afford a place of their own. “I used to live with my sister, sharing an apartment,” shared Lizet. “She has many kids, which made it very hard in that crowded apartment. We just couldn’t live like that any longer.”

Lizet shares her story above in a new video she made during the COVID-19 crisis. #GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Let’s come together to create a wave of generosity and support those desperately in need of a safe place to call home.
