We are proud to launch a new program to enhance Portland's livability by advocating for abundant, affordable, and diverse housing in the city. As Portland - and Oregon - grows, it is imperative that we that support our future with growth plans that match both our needs and our values as Oregonians. Portland for Everyone is a project that engages the local community to find ways to increase our housing where people want to live. That means access to housing, transit, work, school, and community for every citizen. This makes a more equitable and vibrant Portland.

Please join us for one of the many open house opportunities.
