The Gift of Safe, Affordable Housing

December 22, 2011 · by pcriadmin · PCRI

Did you see Willamette Week’s recent article—the one which states Portland’s rents have risen 17% in the last five years—and 8% just this year?  The article reminded us of some things we already knew: rental housing is more expensive and less available than ever.

It’s one of the reasons we’re working harder than ever to provide safe, healthy and affordable homes for lower-income Portland individuals and families.

In 2011, 15% more families moved into PCRI homes than in 2010 (and 2010 was a busy year!).

Our sights are set to do even more next year.  With your help, we will continue to create affordable housing options and rehabilitate our existing homes, and can exceed our goal to provide affordable rentals to 25% more families in 2012.

Your contribution of $100 is an invaluable tool for growth. It supports PCRI and empowers residents to build a stable and rewarding future through access to our affordable rentals and comprehensive programs. Through these services we have positively impacted residents’ lives and changed the community in which we have invested and reinvested over the last 20 years. North and Northeast Portland would not be the same without the support of partners like you.

You can contribute easily and instantly through our online partnership with Network for Good.  Visit and click on the “Donate Now” button.  Your contribution goes directly toward the housing and services that impact and empower our resident.
