Celebrating 2 years at Bud Clark Commons!

September 6, 2013

Last night, Nick was honored to join Multnomah County Commissioner Deborah Kafoury, former Portland Mayor Bud Clark, PNCA Professor and poet Barry Sanders, and other community leaders at the 2nd Anniversary of Bud Clark Commons.

The unique eight-story building was designed by Holst Architecture. Named for former Portland Mayor Bud Clark, the Commons provides a continuum of services. Our community partners Transition Projects and Home Forward provide access to healthcare, shelter, and counseling to help people experiencing homelessness transition from the vulnerability of the streets to a more permanent home.

Bud Clark Commons is like no other building in the country. It includes a 90-bed transitional shelter for men, 130 studio apartments, and a day center. Bud Clark Commons represents the best of our work – and the strong belief that we are all in this together.

Congratulations Bud Clark Commons on two incredible years of care and service!
