ROSE Community Development

BIPOC-Led Organization


ROSE builds affordable homes and community to make outer southeast neighborhoods strong and equitable.

Bottom Line for Portland

We believe good homes give people the chance to live better lives. Working in one of Portland's most diverse neighborhoods, we have created over 500 affordable homes for families, individuals, and seniors living with low-income. For thirty years, ROSE has been rooted in place in outer southeast Portland and we remain committed to operating on the neighborhood level to achieve the greatest impact. We are an asset-based community developer, and build on existing strengths and assets in our community. Your donation is an investment in the future of outer southeast Portland. 


“I never imagined I would get housing. I thought I was going to be homeless forever. When I came to look at my new place, it was a dream come true. When I had my daughter, I knew that she was going to grow up in stable housing. She will be able to grow and succeed in life.” -ROSE Resident since 2008

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

  • We are conscious of how historic inequities generate current disparities and engage those who have been left out in accessing housing, services, and resources to create the lives they envision for themselves. A commitment to equity is at the heart of everything we do.
