We can help!
On Saturday, May 27th, 2023 from 9am-3pm AAAH's community partners will remove hard to dispose of items from the homes of Portlanders who have not had equitable access to waste elimination. A large Drop Box (dumpster) will be onsite in the ReBuilding Center's parking lot for free disposal of bulk waste, furniture, appliances, cardboard, mattresses, bed frames, box springs, building materials, bagged yard debris, and more. AAAH is also providing pick-up services all day for folks with mobility limitations in NxNE Portland! For either option, registration is required.
Register here for free drop-off or pick-up.
Day of Service
Each year AAAH teams up with the ReBuilding Center to perform home repairs, maintenance, and yard work for up to 10 historically disadvantaged homeowners in NxNE Portland. Projects vary depending on need/skill but typically include carpentry, painting, small electrical fixes, minor plumbing, fence mending, trimming, weeding, and more.
How it works: Homeowners apply for assistance through AAAH's home retention department, sites are screened and approved by staff, ReBuilding Center assigns a team of skilled volunteers to perform the work, and the projects are completed on event day! Day of Service is possible thanks to public donations for material costs, tools, inspections, and hauling - if you would like to donate and assist a neighbor in need, you may do so by following the link here:

On behalf of AAAH and Bienestar we want to thank our fair sponsors, vendors, and supporters for helping to make the 1st annual Washington County Homeownership Fair a success. A special thanks to Hillsboro’s Mayor Steve Callaway who kicked off the event with a special presentation around the value of homeownership and the commitment around the AAAH and Bienestar partnership.
