Come join your IMA Portland Chapter for a Saturday volunteering with Habitat for Humanity!
As a part of a Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, Habitat works hand-in-hand with Cully residents and other nonprofit partners to help improve the neighborhood and enhance the quality of life. Habitat’s efforts in Cully serve to encourage low-income homeownership and minimize displacement as the median home value continues to rise.
