REACH Community Development
Creating quality, affordable housing and opportunities for individuals, families and communities to thrive.
Bottom Line for Portland
In our region, there are not enough homes that are affordable to people with lower and moderate incomes. As a result, thousands of households live in unaffordable or overcrowded homes, and many are experiencing homelessness.
As one of the largest non-profit developers and managers of rental homes, REACH is leading the way to permanently solve this crisis by building homes across the region and helping people stay in their current homes. With the support of our non-profit and community peers, every year, people find dignified housing solutions when they move into REACH homes. Hundreds more find stability by accessing REACH resources, emergency services, and free home repairs. This year REACH is celebrating 40 years of our reach!
“REACH has always provided services and events that have affirmed to me that I belong to a community, not an apartment property.” - April, REACH resident
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
REACH operates within the reality of a racist housing industry, both past and present. As housing and service providers, we address the harmful impacts of paternalism that exists in white-dominant culture through listening and learning from historically excluded communities. While this work is ongoing, our current efforts are focused on providing training, internal accountability and partnering with culturally specific organizations to inform housing development and resident programming.
