Portland, Oregon–Shelter Layering is excited, and humbled, to now note that one percent of our annual sales will go to Portland’s local Habitat For Humanity: a nonprofit group that helps low-income families build and buy homes of their own.

From our company’s beginnings this has been planned. It’s on our hearts to be involved, make an impression, and a connection with Habitat just feels inspired. In June 2005, we formally realized this developing relationship; supporting and promoting it in marketing elements related to the brand.

Habitat’s program is this: ‘by partnering with the community, volunteers build simple houses, sold at cost with a zero-interest down payment mortgage to hardworking qualified families.’ As a return, these families each then commit 500 hours of sweat equity back into it all. Details of these efforts, along with volunteer opportunities and a link to the international organization’s main site–with listings of Habitat affiliates in your area–can be found at pdxhabitat.org.
