Community Liaisons

Community Liaisons build and maintain relationships and lines of communication between non-profit and community-based organizations and the Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) by providing ongoing expertise and involvement in the organization' housing-related missions.

The Community Liaison program aligns with the Citywide Racial Equity Goals of the Office of Equity and Human Rights, PHB’s Guiding Principles of Equity and Social Justice, as well as Chapter 2 of the 2035 Comprehensive Plan, and the Community Involvement Program recommended draft.

PHB’s Community Liaisons:

  • Keep communities within their respective districts informed about and seek feedback on bureau related projects and programs
  • Promote meaningful participation through inquiry of housing related needs, preferences and suggestions
  • Share community input with bureau staff and relay staff responses back to community members
  • Cultivate and maintain relationships with organizations, nonprofits, developers, contractors, and community members at large
  • Work within their districts to inform groups on how to advocate for their position
  • Share information about PHB resources available to the clients/constituents of community organizations
