Habitat's Jubilee Dedication


Habitat for Humanity Portland Metro-East just finished their 23-home community in Gresham, Jubilee Commons, and celebrated with their home dedication ceremony Jan. 22. Jubilee Commons is now the largest Habitat community in Oregon housing 23 families and over 50 children.

I photographed the celebration for them which we started with a large group shot of some of the Jubilee Common’s homeowners. They followed with speeches from the homeowners, board members and awards to several people for their commitments and contributions to the project. After the ceremony, Boys Without Toys played for the crowd and the Macaroni Grill served food.

It felt really great to see so many new homeowners on stage and receive the keys to their new homes. Most families in the newest building will be moving in throughout the month of February and official own their homes. I started volunteering for Habitat over two years ago when this project was just getting off the ground and was amazing to see it all come together.
