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!

With More in the Pipeline!
Woodland Hearth

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.

Value Inn Redevelopment

This redevelopment will turn the Portland Value Inn site into a 98-unit multifamily rental development serving families. 58 apartment homes will have at least two bedrooms, and 39 will be affordable to households with incomes at 30% area median income or below. The community will include homes for 15 families with a head of household with a disabling condition who are exiting long-term, homelessness. CPAH and HAKI Community Services will offer resident services, HAKI will lead outreach efforts, and Urban League will provide case management and Supportive Housing services.

Greenburg Oaks Rehab

With Preservation Pool funding from Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS), CPAH will begin rehabilitating Greenburg Oaks to ensure the housing is available to residents into the future. The repairs will improve the building’s resistance to rainy Oregon winters  and bring new life to the exterior.

Oleson Woods Rehab

With Preservation Pool funding from Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS), CPAH will rehabilitate Oleson Woods, including restoration of the wetlands on the property with the help of the Homebuilders Foundation, to ensure the housing is available to residents into the future.

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.

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.

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.
