Welcome home, again.
As a symbol of our renewed commitment to providing our most vulnerable neighbors with access to affordable housing and services, we are proud to unveil our new name and new identity. With it, we hope to more clearly represent who we are and what we offer to the people of Multnomah County.
Conceived during the Great Depression and born at the start of World War II, the Housing Authority of Portland quickly became a national symbol of hope, creating housing for 72,000 people in our first two years of existence: more than any public agency in the country. Since then, we have continued to lead and innovate in fostering economic stability and potential for our residents, as they move themselves forward into new homes and new lives.
Today, as our community pulls itself up out of the deepest economic recession since we first opened our doors, it seems a fitting time to reflect on our mission, to reaffirm our passion, and to open a new door — to our own new life — with renewed intention and vigor. As part of this new effort, we have redesigned our website from the ground up to reflect our new identity, and to better serve and communicate with you.
We are still the same people: your neighbors and friends, working to build hope, access, and potential for our fellow citizens. But today, we’ve put out a fresh new welcome mat. Welcome to Home Forward.
