Thank you for visiting the North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity
Founded with the vision and energy of Ivo Bauman in 1986, North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity is the second of 33 affiliates established in Oregon. Habitat affiliates are formed in a community as a Christian ministry that not only builds homes for those in need but also transforms communities.
We encourage you to explore the site and learn more about what we do, how you can help, or how we can help you.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
We believe that no one lives in dignity until everyone can live in dignity. We believe that every person has something to contribute and something to gain from creating communities in which all people have decent, affordable places to live. We believe that dignity and hope are best achieved through equitable, accountable partnerships.
Envisioning a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
We view our work as successful when it transforms lives and promotes positive and lasting social, economic and spiritual change within a community; when it is based on mutual trust and fully shared accomplishment; and when it demonstrates responsible stewardship of all resources entrusted to us.
Since our affiliate began in 1986, we have partnered with 43 local families to build homes, participated in over 60 global builds, completed 21 repair projects (with many more to come), and are operating two successful ReStores.
As a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry that builds with people in need regardless of race or religion, we welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.
Habitat for Humanity has over 1400 affiliates in the United States and more than 70 national organizations around the world. Together, we have helped 6.8 million people improve their living conditions since our founding in 1976.
There are nearly 2 billion people around the world who live in slum housing and more than 100 million are homeless. Habitat helps by building or renovating simple, decent houses in partnership with those in need.
Habitat for Humanity houses are simple, decent and affordable to low-income families around the world. This is why we love what we do.
