Finding home at the Viewfinder: Charlene

In 2020 Charlene’s family was evicted from their Beaverton home over complaints from a neighbor and briefly stayed with her daughter in Beaverton. That’s when they found the Good Neighbor Center, where they lived for several months until the organization’s housing specialist helped them find a home at another Beaverton apartment complex.  

When the complex was due for renovations a year later, the housing specialist suggested the Viewfinder. Charlene recently earned a degree in medical billing and coding and is looking for a career in her field. Ultimately, she plans to own her own home, and staff at the Good Neighbor Center connected her with the African American Alliance for Homeownership to work towards that goal. Her oldest son is 21 and has autism, so he will continue to live with Charlene long term.  

“It's just nice not having to worry about coming up with a lot of money for an apartment,” she explained, “and it means a lot that my kids know we're stable.”
