Kah San Chako Haws takes shape in SE Portland

October 11, 2012

By David Nguyen

Construction of the Native American Youth and Family Center's (NAYA) innovative new affordable housing community in Southeast Portland is underway - and incredibly, will be completed in the impressive time of just 3 days!

The $1.7 million apartment community, Kah San Chako Haws - "East House" in the Chinook language - was built using a very innovative technique.  The modular pieces of the complex were built at a factory off-site, trucked to Portland, and are being pieced together to turn into affordable, permanent homes. 

Kah San Chako Haws will offer nine individuals and families a modern and energy-efficient place to call home.

The Portland Housing Bureau was proud to join our local housing partners to provide quality, affordable homes for families in the Lents neighborhood.
