Home Forward’s 84-unit new construction project located in the Cully neighborhood of Northeast Portland will co-locate affordable housing and a brand new Workforce Development Center operated by Portland Community College (PCC).  Included in the project’s mix of studios and family-size units are 12 project-based, service enriched Family Unification Program (FUP) Section 8 Vouchers.  These unique HUD vouchers with state and locally funded case management will serve two vulnerable populations: families needing stable, affordable housing to avoid foster care placements of their children or reunite with children currently in foster care; and youth aging out of foster care.

Building amenities include a family room with lounge seating and TV, a community kitchen and dining table, community computers, a large laundry room with healthy food vending machines, and a bike storage room. Commercial space will be located on the ground floor, and the outdoor area will include a dining area and courtyard programmed with an experiential playscape. Through the collaboration with PCC, the site will offer a 16,000 square foot plaza designed to support a weekly farmers market and other community-focused activities, a casual amphitheater, Wi-Fi access throughout, and approximately 80 parking spaces shared between PCC and Home Forward.
