Doris says: “I love it here. I’m not moving.”
Seniors and people with disabilities deserve the dignity of a decent place to call home. Doris, 70, has experienced homelessness. At Roselyn Apartments, Doris has rebuilt her life and participates in the social opportunities that her building and community provide. She attends a jewelry beading group, shops at the nearby farmers market, plays bingo and enjoys lunches at Loaves and Fishes. This lifelong Oregonian and former caregiver says she knows everyone in her building, where she’s lived for 13 years.
