Homeownership Survey Public Report web coverIn 2015, Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East conducted a survey with all partner families since our affiliate began 35 years ago.  The purpose of this survey was to evaluate the impact of Habitat homeownership from the homebuyer’s perspective. The survey was sent to both Habitat homeowners that have been in their houses for decades—some of whom have paid their mortgages in full—and to families who recently purchased their homes, providing perspectives from different stages of the homeownership experience. The survey primarily focused on health, education, and financial situations before and after families became homeowners.
