Neighbors working together: Home, Heart, Heritage

Home, Heart, Heritiage

Home

Home:

All of the members of our community find a place to call home.

Sabin cares. Our vision is for neighborhoods where everyone has the opportunity to access housing that meets their family’s needs, to choose successful schools, and to enjoy the support of neighborhoods without divisive gentrification and its disparate impact on communities of color.

Our strategies for implementing this vision go beyond the provision of affordable housing. Sabin provides programs for seniors and youth that bring together neighbors to share skills and connect with economic and educational opportunities. Sabin’s policy of hiring staff through our work opportunities partners provides a direct connection to low-income youth and adults seeking job training and employment.

The ingredients of a healthy community: diversity, affordability, services, jobs, housing, education, and residents who care.

The richness of a community can often be found in its history and is a gift to our children.

The neighborhoods Sabin serves historically housed Portland’s tightly knit African-American community. Sabin plays a critical role in preserving economic and racial diversity in our service area where housing costs have increased exponentially and income inequality has grown more than in any other part of the city.

Sabin approaches its work using a social equity model: Sabin acts as a steward to protect affordable housing stock, to provide tenant income supports and to share community resources. We strive to ensure that our tenants and the neighborhood at large benefit from our community’s transportation and social services, as well as grocery stores, schools and health care. Access to these resources is key to maintaining household self-sufficiency in NE Portland.
