About Home Forward:
Home Forward's mission is to provide shelter and support for our neighbors in need.
We believe that when it comes to ending the cycle of poverty, nothing is more powerful than providing people a home. A street address and a roof over one's head, yes. Also a haven: a shelter from life's storms and a safe place to raise a family. A place to store belongings. More importantly — a place to belong.
Home Forward is the Housing Authority of Portland and promotes, operates and develops affordable housing and is a community leader in creating public commitment, policy and funding to preserve and develop affordable housing.
