Located in the Portsmouth neighborhood of North Portland, our first location opened its doors in April 2011.
Construction of this site was intended to promote sustainability, resident accessibility and community connection. It includes several green features including bio-swales, an ecological method of storm water management, and solar panels for hot water heaters in nine of the elder apartments.
This site also accommodates people with disabilities with handicap parking, four fully certified ADA apartments, and the bathrooms in the elder apartments are made with universal design and wheelchair accessibility. The result is a cutting-edge facility that, with its circular layout, literally embraces and connects its residents.
Our North Portland community currently serves 69 residents: 30 youth (25 former foster youth)
9 adoptive parents
30 elders with limited means
