“Habitat has allowed us to build our own home, with our family, for our family. It would not have been possible financially without the help of Habitat and all the volunteers. Along with learning new skills along the way! We are extremely blessed to have a house to call our home that we built with all of our friends, new and old.”

Jessica, Homeowner since 2015

The clock was ticking for South County couple Steve and Alexa as they were four days away from becoming homeless. After living in the same Tierra Del Mar rental for 20 years, this couple was unexpectedly forced to move due to the bank foreclosing on their home when their landlord stopped paying the mortgage.
The clock was ticking for South County couple Steve and Alexa as they were four days away from becoming homeless. After living in the same Tierra Del Mar rental for 20 years, this couple was unexpectedly forced to move due to the bank foreclosing on their home when their landlord stopped paying the mortgage."We were given 30 days notice to move and have been unable to find any affordable rentals," says Alexa. They were running out of time but refused to give up hope. As a retired Air Force Veteran, Steve has all fight and no flight in his blood. While stationed on Mt. Hebo from 1972-75 during the Cold War, he was in charge of looking for sea launched ballistic missiles coming from Russia. Steve worked on the computer that determined when and where the missile would and could land. It was the only super computer in the armed forces. After 43 years of marriage and raising two children, Steve and Alexa have become a well loved and respected couple in our community. Steve worked for Hopkes Logging for six years as well as Balmer Logging in Hebo before he retired. With the same tenacity and faith they have carried through life, Steve and Alexa were believing God would provide. Meanwhile, Tillamook County Habitat had just been donated a well maintained 5th wheel trailer from a Portland couple who saw a Habitat flier in Rosenbergs. Stumpy from Tillamook RV helped haul the trailer into town and it was on the lot less than a few hours when a friend of Steve and Alexa's called and asked if they had any affordable trailers for a family in need. Bingo!! Steve and Alexa met with Habitat Director Cami Aufdermauer where she discussed with them Habitat's model in helping families who have a need, willingness to partner, and ability to pay. With all the criteria met, an emergency board decision was reached in order to offer this couple a 0% loan to purchase the trailer through affordable monthly payments. "It's amazing to see how the Lord works out all the details. We were praying that this trailer would go to someone who truly needed it," said Cami. #tillamookhabitatforhumanity#tillamookliving#buildingthekingdom#veteranbuild#habiatforhumanity#tillamookrvrepairs#volunteer
Today we got to honor a special new friend and veteran Gordon
Today we got to honor a special new friend and veteran Gordon "Bud" Porter. Referred to Habitat by his daughter Jody, Bud was living in a trailer with no working furnace, fridge, or stove. With the help of many community partners including Home Depot and Tillamook RV, this shinning star has found his joy again. After serving in the Navy during the Korean War as an electrician, Bud lost his hearing. As a disabled veteran his funding is limited and the cost of these home repairs far outweighed his ability to pay. With the help of Tillamook Habitat for Humanity Bud was given a 0% interest loan where is he only required to pay back a small portion of the overall cost of repairs. "We would not be able to do this work if it were not for the generosity of community partners who want to give back to the ones who gave so much to us," says Habitat Executive Director Cami Aufdermauer. Habitat is expanding their already existing programs to focus on serving veterans in Tillamook County.

When asked what Donny enjoys most about his job he stated, “Knowing that I am helping families get into affordable homes and helping in the community.” Donny has a personal goal to see the ReStore grow and bring in more funding in order to support two houses a year. The ReStore is in need of quality donations that can be resold in our store. There is a complete brochure of acceptable donations on our website at tillamookhabitat.org under ReStore. The ReStore staff is now available to schedule donation pickups on both Tuesdays and Saturdays. Gas donations are greatly appreciated.
