Portland Pride Build will embrace diversity and give back to our community by working together, learning from one another, and helping to shed light on the affordable housing needs of our community. 

Come help us celebrate this exciting event with a kickoff at Crush with music, fun and laugher. The fabulous Miss Mylar will be the emcee for the event.

About Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East: 10.0pt;font-family:Arial"> Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East serves Multnomah County and northern Clackamas County. No other housing organization in the Portland/Metro East area offers a no-interest mortgage, giving Habitat the ability to reach out to families one step away from homelessness. Habitat sells the homes at cost, making no profit. Houses are sold below market value because of volunteer labor and donations. Families pay a 1% down payment on a 0% interest mortgage. Instead of being in a vulnerable and fragile economic position, Habitat families find themselves in a position of strength.
