Community Partners for Affordable Housing cares about our residents, our staff and the community. We continue to take proactive and precautionary measures to guard against contraction and spread of COVID-19. Although there are times that staff will be at the office or at our properties, and following social distancing guidelines, we will generally be working from home and meeting remotely.
CPAH’s growing community includes eight apartment communities with 368 units and six houses.
CPAH provides a range of services to support and strengthen our residents and communities.
Community Partners for Affordable Housing (CPAH) is dedicated to building quality affordable housing opportunities with services and programs in Washington County and SW Portland. We have been part of the local response to this growing need for 27 years.
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!
Woodland Hearth is designed in response to feedback gathered during extensive community engagement along the SW Transportation corridor: a growing need for large family units. The design, therefore, is based on the premise of providing families and their children a place to call home. It provides opportunities for both younger and older children to play alongside a space to grow food, and includes a connection with nature. The 63-unit community will include 19 three-bedroom and five four-bedroom units to accommodate multiple family types and living arrangements.
The Joyce Renovation
CPAH staff focuses on connecting residents with housing stabilization services in order to keep them safe in their housing and avoid evictions whenever possible.
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.
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.
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.
CPAH’s Thriving in Place Program aims to help residents aged 55 and older live independently as long as possible.
CPAH is always thinking about new and better ways to serve our residents. Currently, we’re creating a Workforce Development Program and Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) services for our most vulnerable residents.
