Habitat Land Bank in Portland Makes National News

We received some incredible news! The New York Times published an article about Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East's land bank, telling people all over the globe how our local fundraising campaign got started and why buying land at historically low rates makes so much sense.

Now we need your help. We need to raise funds to build homes on this land. Please consider donating $25, $50, or $100 today. Every dollar helps and will go directly towards building a healthy, thriving community. With your help, we might just get to live in a city where everyone has a decent, affordable place to call home! Wouldn't that be something?
