Sara says: “I like living downtown. People are nice here.”
Our most vulnerable residents deserve a safe place to call home. Sara, 71, moved into Park Tower in 1989. Originally from Indiana, Sara survived breast cancer and wanted a place to live where she could feel safe while maintaining her independence. She likes living downtown. Sara volunteers for Meals on Wheels and is a member of the Portland Art Museum. If it weren’t for her home at Park Tower, Sara says, “I would be on the street, where there’s danger, stress and depression.”
