Oregon Housing Alliance: Homes Change Everything
For many of us, a safe, decent, affordable home is the place we launch our dreams. It is the place we return to as we put our feet up after a hard day’s work. It is the place we share tender moments with our partners. It is the place we grow and play with our kids.
However, too many Oregonians face barriers that prevent them from having a place they call home. Rents are too high. There are too many people experiencing homelessness. Many families are experiencing the devastation of a foreclosure. And housing near opportunities, schools, and jobs is hard to find and hard to secure.
Oregon faces choices every year in the State Legislature that can help us meet housing needs. The Housing Alliance, under NP’s leadership, has advocated for housing opportunity since 2004. Together we have secured dozens of major victories for Oregonians who need a home. But there’s still so much more to do before every Oregonian has a safe, decent, and affordable place to call home.
