Mutual Self-Help and Home Repair Programs Moving to Real Estate Development

June 30, 2020

We are moving our Mutual Self-Help and Home Repair programs into our Real Estate Development group. These programs, and their current staff, will join the Real Estate Development team under a new Single-Family Housing division, led by Eric Hill. The Real Estate Development team is excited to have these important and beneficial programs as part of our work. Construction is starting on three “Self-Help Lite” homes in Myrtle Creek by mid-August. These homes will be built by Big River Builders. The participating families will contribute sweat equity to make their homes more affordable. Funding for the “Self-Help Lite” program is provided by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Self-Help Opportunity Program (SHOP).  

Our DreamBuilders Mutual Self-Help program is taking a brief pause to recruit more families and gear up for a restart. We are looking at build sites in Winston and Roseburg. DreamBuilders is always looking for prospective families, so please send us your referrals and spread the word about this program.

“This grant has been an incredible blessing. The ability to move freely, using my power chair, from my bedroom to my bathroom has been immeasurable.  Also, my care providers can now help me shower whereas before there was so little room for them(sic) I was afraid they would injure their backs while helping me from my chair to the shower.”
