Helping people secure – and retain – permanent housing is the ultimate goal of our work.

We do this by placing people into rental apartments throughout the Portland metro area, and by operating three buildings for those moving from homelessness to housing.

We provide short- and long-term support for participants to rent housing units throughout the metro area. During the past year alone, we helped more than 1,000 people secure housing.

But our work doesn't end there. We remain engaged, providing the follow-up services critical to successful placements and ensuring that once housed, people stay housed.

Argyle Gardens

(LISAH - Low Income Single Adult Housing)


Argyle Gardens represents a step forward in the national effort to design, build, and maintain affordable housing. Located in Portland’s Kenton neighborhood, Argyle Gardens is the first modular housing project permitted by the City of Portland, and the second large-scale modular housing project in the city.

Because of its modular design, Argyle Gardens is a high-efficiency affordable housing model that can be more readily replicated and scaled up and down by other modular builders around the country.

Most importantly, our design, construction, and housing models all lend themselves to a deeply affordable housing project that can be operated in the long term while providing the lowest possible rents to tenants.

With Argyle Gardens, we scaled down the typical SRO (Single Room Occupancy) model to allow for smaller groups of residents to share kitchen and bathroom spaces and to create more opportunities for accountability and community building.

On June 26, 2020 we gathered online to celebrate the opening of Argyle Gardens and discuss opportunities for communities across the U.S. to implement a similar development model. Watch the full event below and consider sharing it with your network of housing advocates.
