Affordable housing for families in need...
Human Solutions develops permanent affordable rental housing, manages our real estate assets for quality and stability, and provides comprehensive resident services based on our understanding that affordable housing is only the first step towards families achieving self-sufficiency.
Human Solutions owns 608 units of housing, in 16 locations in East Portland, Gresham and Fairview. All units are income restricted, with a maximum income “ceiling” of 60% of Area Median Income although many of our residents earn far less–typically about 30% of median or $20,350 annually for a family of four. Typically our housing units are 2 and 3 bedrooms, but we also have 4 and 5 bedroom units for the many large families that we house. Most of our new units are equipped with washer/dryers and our projects have community rooms and playgrounds.
Resident Services works to address the needs of residents who are often isolated from our community institutions due to educational, economic and cultural barriers and the complexity of the fragmented systems that provide services to low-income families. Resident Services programs and activities engage children and adults in learning new skills and in developing relationships with their neighbors and the broader community. More than 70% of the contacts between the Resident Services staff and the residents address basic needs such as rent and utility assistance, food and clothing and helping families advocate for themselves.
