Affordable housing for all! Catholic Charities and Related Northwest have made a collaborative effort to bring a multifamily construction project, Cathedral Village Apartments, to fruition. This will ultimately offer more than 100 affordable new apartments to families, communities of color, immigrants, refugees, and those at risk of homelessness in St. Johns. With recent approval and funding support from The Portland City Council, construction has already begun and we should see completion in 2022.

All future residents of Cathedral Village will have accessibility to nearby local amenities and natural greenspaces. Units that are designated as Permanent Supportive Housing will provide chronically homeless families with access to whole-person healthcare as well as a range of onsite social services.

In summary, here’s what we can expect from the Cathedral Village Affordable Housing project:

-Safe, secure, and affordable housing. (More than 100+ apartments will be offered to those with low-income and experiencing homelessness.)
-Sense of community. (Social events, resources, and public spaces to encourage the uplifting of those in need.)
-Access to health care. (Whole-person physical, mental, and social well-being services.)
-On-site resident support services. (Housing stability, financial resources, after-school youth programs, and more will be offered.)
-Convenient urban location. (Local shops, libraries, and green spaces all around.)
