Every day in our City, low-income, hardworking families struggle to find affordable places to live. Rapidly rising rents force these families to live in unsafe, unhealthy and crowded conditions. Families often have to move once or twice a year in search of rents that stay within their reach. For communities of color, the impacts are even more pronounced. Today in Portland, only three in 10 households of color own their own home, and the average African American, Latino and Native American household is no longer able to afford to rent or buy a home anywhere inside our city.
WHO WE ARE:
Habitat for Humanity partners with people in local communities, and all over the world, to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With community support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.
Started in 1981, Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East (HFHPME) revitalizes neighborhoods, builds affordable and sustainable homes, and empowers families through successful homeownership. HFHPME is an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a global home building movement. HFHPME is one of the most successful affiliates in the nation and is on the leading edge of program development, innovation and fundraising.
Through our 2021 Strategic Plan, HFHPME will serve more people than ever before through decent and affordable housing. This innovative and bold plan will triple the number of families served annually, and includes a shift to a new business model that leverages private fundraising with financial and nonprofit partnerships. The Development Director position will play a critical role in leading the organizations philanthropic programs to new heights.
