Story by Sarah Wigginton

This Saturday, July 31, the Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA) is holding its 5th annual Native American Housing to Homeownership Fair. Nick is honored to be a speaker at the event.

The fair will offer a wide range of housing resources to help Alaskan Natives and American Indians in the Portland Metro area. Attend workshops on financial wellness, first-time home buying, and rental housing. There will also be real estate agents, banks, and foreclosure prevention counselors available to give advice and information.

In addition to great housing resources, the Homeownership Fair will provide a free lunch from Nawitka Catering, and there will be a special performance by the NAYA Family Center Dancers.

The fair will be held at the NAYA Family Center, 5135 NE Columbia Boulevard, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Admission is free and everyone is welcome!
