Stark Family Housing

Under Construction
Stark Family Housing is a new construction, 93-unit affordable multifamily project being developed by Human Solutions in the Glenfair neighborhood.
Summer 2022

The 93-unit Stark Family Housing project will be constructed in the Glenfair neighborhood of outer East Portland. The project will use a Housing First model providing permanent housing for people experiencing homelessness with intensive on-site support and clinical services. Stark Family Housing will contribute to the Rosewood Initiative’s Purpose Built Communities plan and will include family-sized units from one to three bedrooms with 16 Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) units in an area where families are experiencing extremely high rates of housing instability, school mobility, and displacement. The site is located across from a full-service grocery and within a quarter mile of a Blue Line MAX stop connecting residents to downtown Portland and Gresham. Human Solutions and LifeWorks Northwest will provide PSH residents with comprehensive case management and access to mental health, addiction, recovery and legal services, along with life skills and employment resources.
