Training Call

When: Tuesday, January 23, 10 a.m.

Habitat at the Capitol is a great opportunity to meet with elected officials and make sure they understand the importance of affordable homeownership and how it affects people in their districts.

In communities throughout Oregon, many of our neighbors are priced out of the opportunity to purchase their first home -- adding pressure to a rental market already bursting at the seams. The need to provide meaningful options to help stabilize at-risk homeowners has never been greater. At the same time, much of our housing stock is deteriorating, especially in rural areas. Our communities become stronger and more vibrant as we united to meet our neighbors' basic needs for a decent place to call home. 

Your support is essential to the success of Habitat at the Capitol

Sharing the positive impact that you make every day will help mobilize support for Habitat’s 2018 legislative initiatives. Make your voice heard -- register below!
