Kah San Chako Haws

Jacob Fox and Margaret Van VlietInside Kah San Chako HawsRey Espana at Kah San Chako HawsWe were so proud to celebrate the opening of Kah San Chako Haws with our friends and partners from the Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA) yesterday. 

This cutting-edge modular housing model was completed in just over a year. It is an innovative, sustainable building – achieving LEED Gold certification – and is supported by Section 8 vouchers provided by Home Forward. 

The $1.7 million apartment community, meaning "East House" in the Chinook language, will provide affordable homes to nine individuals and families. The Portland Housing Bureau proudly supported this project with a $1,221,147 investment.

We welcome the newest residents of the Lents neighborhood!
