Habitat for Humanity provides opportunities for people to purchase affordable homes across the Portland region. Our model allows Habitat homeowners to build equity in their homes, while ensuring that the home is affordable to the next buyer. Habitat homebuyers help build their own homes and purchase them with affordable mortgages.
