OUR VISION:  A WORLD WHERE EVERYONE HAS A DECENT PLACE TO LIVE

Building strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter

 

People in your community and around the world partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Qualifying families purchase Habitat homes after contributing 500 hours of "sweat equity" and taking 12 months of homeowner education classes.  By providing a hand UP, not a hand-out, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families. 

Willamette West is one of 32 Oregon Habitat offices and 1,300 offices nationwide, each independently operated.  Habitat for Humanity serves 70 nations around the globe.

Our local focus is on the Portland Metro Westside including the cities of Aloha, Beaverton, Hillsboro, King City, Lake Oswego, Tigard, Tualatin, West Linn, and Wilsonville.
