The Joyce

The Joyce, from Community Partners for Affordable Housing, is a redevelopment project in Downtown Portland providing 66 units for people exiting homelessness.

A complete renovation of The Joyce provides Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) for people who have been homeless, who are vulnerable, and who need both subsidized housing and services to be successful. The Joyce is dedicated fully to residents who need this combination of intensive services and deeply affordable rents. A rich array of voluntary supportive services are offered onsite through a collaboration of supportive service providers: Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare, Native American Rehabilitation Association (NARA), and Cascade AIDS Project. The ground floor has been reconfigured with community-serving spaces including a clinic room, offices for service providers, a community room, mail and laundry areas, and resident lobby. Above are 3 stories of SRO-style units and restrooms.
