Housing

NAYA Family Center is focused on providing a continuum of housing options for all members our community through the work of our Community Development office.

In 2009 we prevented a collection of low-income housing units from being lost in a bureaucratic shuffle, and named it “Sawash,” a fully-occupied collection of 44 units of low-income housing in North Portland.

In 2011, we completed construction on Kah San Chako Haws, a 9-unit, LEED Gold-certified modular housing development in the Lents Neighborhood, whose name means “East House” in Chinook Jargon.

We are now focused on developing the Generations Project, a proposed intergenerational community at the old Foster School site at SE 85th and Steele St.
