Charlotte B. Rutherford Place

Housing
Charlotte B. Rutherford Place, developed by Central City Concern, provides 51 units of affordable housing in the Arbor Lodge neighborhood, with priority given to displaced or longtime residents of North/Northeast Portland through the City’s Preference Policy.
Completed – Opened Fall 2018

Charlotte B. Rutherford Place is part of the City of Portland’s N/NE Neighborhood Housing Strategy to address displacement and gentrification in the historic neighborhoods of North and Northeast Portland. Longtime or displaced residents with ties to the community are prioritized for available housing through the Preference Policy.

Developed by Central City Concern, the four-story building has 51 apartments for households at 30-60% AMI. These units target employed clients who seek to exit transitional housing programs. On-site resident services include culturally specific recovery and employment support through partnerships with Miracles Club, the Native American Rehabilitation Association (NARA), and the Imani Program. Additionally, the close proximity to Head Start childcare, grocery stores, medical facilities, and the Rosa Parks MAX station and N Lombard Transit Center will support residents in achieving self-sufficiency.
