New Developments

Plambeck Gardens

Named in honor of Doug Plambeck, a founding CPAH Board Member and affordable housing advocate who lost a battle with cancer in March of 2020. CPAH received funding from the Washington County Metro Affordable Housing Bond to build 116 units in Tualatin, on 4.66 acres of land purchased earlier this year. We anticipate construction beginning in 2022 and are looking forward to building new relationships with the City of Tualatin!

CPAH is Building the Way Home
Joyce Hotel Renovation

CPAH will completely renovate the Joyce Hotel in downtown Portland, providing 66 units of Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) for people who have been homeless, are vulnerable, and who need both subsidized housing and services to be successful. Voluntary supportive services will be offered onsite through a collaboration of service providers: Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare, NARA, and Cascade AIDS Project.

Resident Services

Girls at CPAH

CPAH staff focuses on connecting residents with housing stabilization services in order to keep them safe in their housing and avoid evictions whenever possible.

Community Building

Resident services staff coordinate community building activities at each of CPAH’s housing sites.  Bringing residents together, providing community space, and supporting a broader network is one way CPAH supports our residents and the community.

After School Program

Supporting families is a long tradition at CPAH.  We provide After School Programs, Summer Youth Camps, and Backpacks and School Supplies to children living at our properties.

Resident Advisory Council

CPAH started our Resident Advisory Committee (RAC) in 2017. Our RAC represents resident voices, in addition to creating leadership opportunities for residents. The goal of the RAC is to support residents in coordinating building activities and to set service priorities.

Thriving in Place

CPAH’s Thriving in Place Program aims to help residents aged 55 and older live independently as long as possible.

Angela Guyre Family

The opportunities I've had thanks to CPAH and their service partners really just showed me that I really can do this no matter what. Over the years I've gained independence and I've been able to take care of my girls.

Candace Nowierski

I'm on a limited income and I wondered where do I live, what do I do. I no longer own my own home, I'm not Section 8, and finding affordable housing for 55 and older is extremely difficult…Finding this housing has been an incredible experience.

Shannon Herrick

I feel affordable housing is important for those of us that just need to get that one most basic need met for shelter.
