Project Timeline 


Focus Groups & Trainings 

It's true. We are planning to build 20 units of affordable housing on our property to serve our North Portland neighbors and to create movement within our partner faith communities to do the same. Our intention, as a church, is to be supportive of the residents that will live in our new apartments, and we know we can't do that alone. Our congregation has been preparing through a series of conversations and training that began in 2017. This spring we are excited to continue that engagement by sitting down to listen to and learn from social service providers in April and our neighbors and other community members in May.  If you are interested in attending one of our focus groups please follow the links below to register.
