Building Community at Roof Raiser Benefit

Our hearts are full after Roof Raiser annual benefit to support FHDC and our property management and workforce partners Evolve. Nearly 150 people joined us at Lagunitas Community Room in Portland to raise the roof on August 24, 2017. As such we were able to raise $43,000 in support of equitable jobs, housing and education for working families and individuals. Events like this are as much about supporting our work as they are about supporting each other in the community development industry.

We would like to thank all of our volunteers, donors and sponsors including LMC Construction, Chase Bank, Legacy Health, Housing Development Center, NOAH, NWHF, Republic Services, Carleton Hart Architecture, Coin Meter, Key Bank, CASA of Oregon and JD Fulwiler Insurance. Be sure to stay in touch with us to follow the development of our first workforce development project Colonia Unidad, and as Evolve challenges the status quo by creating a new model for property management and job creation in Oregon. Thanks for joining us!
