Central City Concern renovated its Medford property, located in Old Town near Union Station and Bud Clark Commons, to continue providing 60 units of low-barrier, recovery-oriented affordable housing. The building was constructed in 1907 and converted to housing in 1989. Improvements focused on the Medford’s immediate needs to extend the life of the building. Thirty (30) of the units are transitional housing targeted to people being released from the corrections system, with rent assistance provided by Multnomah County. These individuals work to meet parole requirements and receive employment services and permanent housing placement assistance. The other 30 units provide permanent housing for those who successfully complete the transitional program. Longer term services include employment support, permanent housing placement, self-sufficiency services, and reintegration assistance. All of the Medford’s affordable units serve individuals earning up to 30% of area median income (AMI).
