Past Events

Day of Service

Teaming up for the fifth annual Day of Service, the ReBuilding Center and the African American
Alliance for Home Ownership (AAAH) came together with volunteers to provide home repairs
to a long-time homeowner in Northeast Portland. Although we were not able to serve as many
homeowners as previous years, the day was just as meaningful.


 Annual Hillsboro 

Homeownership Fair

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. Photos include Mayor Callaway, some of our table vendors, and fair goers.  A free lunch was catered by a Bienestar resident, along with live music by a fantastic Latino artist.
