MH/OSTA History in brief

1977 OSTA begins as grassroots group of mobile home park homeowners. OSTA develops member base, becoming Manufactured Home Owners of Oregon,

MHOO/OSTA and park owners group told by legistature to work together or not be heard in Salem. Period.

1997, working for win-win legislation breaks stalemate and ORS Chapter 90 pours forth. Oregon Landlord Tenant Statutes shifted the focus of MHOO/OSTA to strengthening statutes and helping homeowners understand/benefit from the law.

Membership dues alone ultimately cannot finance roles of homeowner educator and legislative watch dog.
2008 , members vote to end MHOO/OSTA and form Manufactured Housing/Oregon State Tenants Association, MH/OSTA, as 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit, opening up funding options and growth.

MH/OSTA acknowledges that as an organization it can do anything but it can not do everything.   Strategic focus aligns to coordinate with community agencies to extend maximum network of support to park homeowners statewide.
