The Joyce is a historic building located at the corner of SW 11th Avenue and the recently renamed Harvey Milk Street, commemorating the center of LGBTQ+ culture in Portland. When renovated, the building will include: 66 efficiently designed single room occupancy affordable housing units in four stories, an elevator, a community room for on-site activities, and a services corridor where residents will be able to connect with on-site supportive services, including wellness activities, care coordination, and crisis intervention. The Joyce will serve 66 formerly homeless individuals, working in partnership with Cascadia Behavioral Health, Cascade AIDS Project, and Native American Rehabilitation Association NW to provide services. Construction will be completed in spring of 2023.
