Habitat Oregon also assists in the coordination of affiliate networking groups in six topic areas.
Advocacy: Habitat Oregon acts as a direct liaison between Habitat for Humanity affiliates and the government of the State of Oregon. In this role, Habitat Oregon is responsible for educating elected officials and employees of the state regarding issues that impact Affiliates.
