Allen Estates

Habitat for Humanity and Lowe's National Women Build Week 2018.


The Goal:  20 Teams, 200 volunteers, raising $30,000, and helping build a house at Allen Estates in Beaverton.

May 5, 8, 9, 10, and 12 (contact us for availability of dates and shifts).

AM Shift:  8:00am - 12:30pm / PM Shift:  11:45am - 4:00pm

Both shifts include snacks, beverages, lunch, and an official 2018 WomenBuild T-shirt.


20 teams of 10 women will raise a minimum of $100 each towards our $30,000 goal, and then show up at the construction site and work on Joan's house.

If you don't have a group of 10, but still want to help raise funds and build this house, we have individual volunteer opportunities available on Saturday, May 12. 


Women across the country will be joining together the week in May leading up to Mother's Day to build houses.  Locally, ladies will be raising money to buy materials, and then swinging a hammer to build a house for Joan and her grandchildren in Beaverton.  Click on the family photo and see a video about eldest granddaughter Katie being crowned Prom Queen at Westview HS in 2015.  This heartwarming story made the national news!

ALLEN ESTATES HISTORY: Allen Estates is a property that was, literally, right in our own backyard. Located just a short block away from both Leadership Row and Huntting Park, the addition of Allen Estates to our portfolio solidified our presence in Beaverton with a total of 34 single-family homes located in an area heavily populated with apartments. Much like BraunerBrook in Hillsboro, Allen Estates was shovel ready with all the utilities and streets in place. To make the property even more attractive, a development design and plan from the former property owner was already approved by the City of Beaverton, so once we were ready to build, we could start! The Allen Estates neighborhood looks different from our previous ones as this neighborhood is a series of townhouse-style homes, grouped in 3-, 4-, or 5-homes per building. Due to city parking regulations, it will also be our first homes with garages. Because of the unique nature of the neighborhood, the buildings will be a combination of 2-story and 3-story homes and there will be some green space between the buildings for the neighborhood kids to play in. When finished in 2018, Allen Estates will be home to 24 families.
