Teaming up for the second annual “Day of Service”
The African American Alliance for Homeownership (AAAH), a nonprofit whose mission is to increase homeownership and economic stability for African Americans and other underserved individuals, and the ReBuilding Center (RBC), a nonprofit organization that offers affordable used building materials, with the goal of building community through reuse came together on Saturday July 15, 2017 to provide home repairs in an effort to stem displacement of long-term residents. This year, the Day of Service doubled its efforts, completing 20 projects for 13 homeowners with more than 60 volunteers!
A special thanks to our event sponsors, Wells Fargo and the City of Portland Housing Bureau who provided funding for materials, supplies, and a few craftsmen as needed.
