The need for safe, decent, and affordable housing in Portland is great - approximately 2,000 people here have no permanent place to call home. To address this, the Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) regularly partners with local government agencies and community partners to increase the affordable housing supply in Portland. This week, Nick joined community partners to celebrate the openings ofWalnut Park and the Martha Washington, Portland's newest affordable housing projects.
