Providence House - Portland
Providence House is a high-quality, supportive housing program founded by the Sisters of Providence and owned and managed by Providence Health and Services. Designed and built especially for low-income, aging seniors, our non-smoking building features 39 private apartments with all the comforts of home. Each apartment includes full kitchen amenities with a dining area, a private bathroom with tub or walk-in shower, built-in storage and an open floor plan. Shared laundry facilities and welcoming community spaces are available to all residents.
Located in the Mount Tabor neighborhood of Portland, Providence House is close to local stores, restaurants, churches, social activities and Providence Medical Center. Nearby public transportation provides easy access to other parts of the city, and van transportation is provided to residents who wish to visit local stores like Wal-Mart, Fred Meyer and WinCo.
Providence places a high value in supporting individual residents and creating a vibrant community by providing a shared computer lab with internet access, gathering spaces for resident groups, and a wide variety of scheduled activities including educational and recreational programming. A Service Coordinator can help residents identify and access local resources and services, and can advocate for residents who need assistance.
Providence House Portland receives an operating subsidy from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD requirements state that applicants for housing at Providence House must be at least 62 years of age at the time of application and their annual income cannot exceed 50% of the area median income. Residents pay approximately 30% of their monthly income toward their rent and utilities.
Providence House Portland provides equal housing opportunities for all prospective tenants regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, parental/family status, marital status, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, creed, political ideology, gender identity or membership in any other class of persons.
