Affordable Housing

Multi-family Affordable Housing

We believe that housing is the foundation upon which whole families can build stable, thriving lives, and a safe, dignified home should be accessible to families living on lower incomes.

Hacienda has built and rehabilitated 376 units of affordable housing in and around Cully. The properties feature hard-to-find 3 and 4 bedroom units that can accommodate the families we serve. If you are looking for housing, please visit Hacienda’s website and call the property directly to inquire about current vacancies.

Affordable Small Homes

“Affordable Small Homes” is a Hacienda CDC- and Verde-led Living Cully project in partnership with Portland Community Reinvestment Initiatives (PCRI) and ROSE Community Development, that lifts up Oregon’s first affordable accessory dwelling unit (ADU) program, designed to serve low-income homeowners and renters. The pilot program will create a replicable model for constructing, financing and managing ADU’s across the Portland metro region on properties owned by lower-income people and in neighborhoods where people of color are most at risk of displacement. The new affordable rental homes are then made available through community-based organizations to low-income people of color and other households at risk of being pushed out by gentrification.
