Habitat for Humanity dedicates new home

On Oct. 16, a Hillsboro family opened the door to their new home — a two-bedroom, two-story house at 1255 S.E. Maple Place — courtesy of Willamette West Habitat for Humanity.

Tam Ngo, Dai Ngo and their 3-year-old daughter are first-time home buyers and, over the past eight months, completed 500 hours of work on their home and other Habitat homes while Dai Ngo also worked as a full-time assembly operator at a large electronics company. The family had been living in a multi-family, six-bedroom home with five other families, all sharing one kitchen and two bathrooms.

The home was completed thanks to a partnership between Willamette West Habitat for Humanity and Bank of America, which funded half of the Ngo’s newly constructed home.

Bank of America has also announced it will present Willamette West Habitat for Humanity with a $55,000 donation.

Bank of America has partnered nationally with Habitat for Humanity since 2002, contributing more than $22 million to Habitat for Humanity’s work around the world. Bank employees also contribute more than 30,000 volunteer hours every year to help rehab and build homes.
