Four affordable housing: Sustaining livibility for those in need

Four affordable housing: Sustaining livibility for those in need

The city thrives as an ethnically diverse, welcoming city, where all its residents are an essential part of the Beaverton community. People want to be part of this community because of the quality of life and diversity we enjoy, but many existing residents increasingly struggle to remain in Beaverton. The city aims to sustain Beaverton’s livability, particularly for those most in need.

The city’s affordable housing activities focus on helping households experiencing homelessness, increasing quality affordable rental housing, providing homeownership opportunities and developing policies geared towards ensuring Black, Indigenous and Communities of Color have access to these opportunities.

Here are a few of the complexes that have recently opened their doors or will be opening soon.
