The Living Cully coalition unites four non-profit community development organizations in a collaborative, long-term, community-led effort to improve the quality of life for people of color and low-income people in Northeast Portland’s Cully neighborhood — and ensure that Cully will always be a place where people of color and low-income people can live and thrive.
