Directions to the Construction Site:
Allen Estates is located at 6486 SW 124th Ave just off of SW 124th Ave and SW Sabin St. From Highway 217, take exit 2B (Allen Ave), turn right onto Allen Ave, turn left onto SW 124th Ave and then turn left onto SW Sabin St. If you are coming from the West, you can get to Hall Blvd via Murray Rd or TV Highway.
 
Where to Park
There is no parking on the construction site. We have arranged for our volunteers to park at Beaverton Nazarene Church, located at 12555 SW 22nd Street. The church has asked that volunteers park in the SE corner of the parking lot only. Please look for the Habitat sign in the parking lot for designated parking. If the designated parking lot area is full, you are welcome to park at the Islamic Center of Portland, on the corner of Hall Blvd and Denney Rd (see below for a map from the parking lot to the construction site).
 
Youth Policy
No one under 16 years of age is allowed on the job site for any reason. 16 and 17 year olds must have a 2017 Youth Waiver signed by a parent or guardian. You must also bring an adult (21 or older) to supervise. If you have any further questions about this policy, please contact Danielle Baker at christinapaggetti@habitatwest.org.
