 EECRC has partnered with Mercy Corps’ Community Investment Trust to coordinate and co-facilitate a financial education class  "Owing to Owning". 

This class promotes financial education and provides the opportunity to invest in commercial real estate for East Portland residents. The Community Investment Trust is a great opportunity for the immigrant community to start investing wisely.
