Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East is excited to announce upcoming Homeownership Application Meetings and an Open Application Round!

Habitat will be accepting applications during our Open Application Round, which will begin February 9, 2015. All application must be turned in by March 6, 2015, which will end the round.

Clients can pick up an application for our Homeownership Program at a Homeownership Application Meeting, where they can learn about our program basics, qualifications and how to apply. They can also pick up applications at our Habitat office.

The Application Meetings are public and will be held:

Tuesday, February 3, 2015

We encourage non-English speakers to bring friends and family who can help interpret for them during the meeting.

During this selection we will be selecting families for remodel homes in our service area, and for our new Helensview build site on NE 64th and Killingsworth (in the Cully area).
