Housing Is Health

In the fall of 2016, six health organizations from the Portland area announced the Housing is Health initiative, which provides major funding for a new clinic and 379 units of urgently-needed new housing in North and East Portland. These buildings will break ground this summer/fall. Central City Concern is continuing to raise funds for the projects via a $3.5 million capital campaign. Please direct donation inquiries to Kristie Perry.
