It’s an honor to lead the talented team at the Portland Housing Bureau. The bureau has come into its own in 2012, and I’m excited about how our work strengthens our community. We continue to make progress toward our goal that all Portland residents have safe and stable homes, but we know there is still much to do. As we start the new fiscal year, the work you do to enrich our community inspires me. Although we have much to celebrate, we still face formidable challenges. Together, we can build on our successes and achieve more. The Portland Housing Bureau partners with many great organizations throughout the region that share our goals of increasing affordability and stability in the local housing market, ending homelessness, and creating equitable opportunities for all our neighbors.
Over the last two years, the Portland Housing Bureau changed dramatically. We are becoming a streamlined and nimble agency as we fortify our partnerships, strive to preserve the city’s affordable housing stock and seek new and sustainable funding sources. Long-term stable funding will allow us to build stronger neighborhoods--and a stronger Portland.
We work in many facets, outlined throughout the site. View the "What We Do" section of the site to explore our mission in action.
