About 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.

In the last 31 years, 44 homes have been constructed by volunteers and purchased by local Habitat families serving the communities of Scotts Mills, Woodburn, Mt. Angel, Silverton, Oregon City, Gervais, Canby, Molalla, Aurora, and Hubbard. Construction on the 45nd home began this summer in Silverton. In addition, NWV Habitat has completed one home rehab, 22 ReHabitat repair projects and has built 65 homes overseas and for a total of 123 families served through construction projects alone!

Anti-Discrimination Policy

NWV Habitat for Humanity provides equal opportunity for employees, volunteers, partner families, and applicants for a Habitat home.  It is the policy of NWV Habitat for Humanity that decisions for all employees, volunteers, partner families, and applicants for a Habitat home will be made without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, veteran status, disability or other characteristics protected under state or federal law.

No person will be retaliated against for raising concerns under this policy. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
