The housing authority works with its local community partners to develop housing programs for the special needs population and to assist participants in obtaining adequate housing.
Located in Clatsop County, the units were developed with state dollars for developmentally disabled individuals. Coast Rehabilitation Services provides services to residences.
This program is obtained from the Housing Center of Portland by Columbia Community Action Team, Inc.. The program is designed to help families with poor rental and credit histories get a second chance to secure suitable rental units. Clatsop Community Action, Clatsop County Housing Authority, and NOAH provide teachers and materials. Representatives from these organizations teach classes for the Women's Resource Center, the food stamps program, as well as other community programs.
Each year the housing authority sends 4 kids to Camp Rosenbaum. The camp is sponsored by the Housing Authority of Portland and is a fantastic opportunity for kids.
Several of our staff serve on local governing boards i.e. Workforce Investment, Coastal Family Health Center and One-Stop, Clatsop County Landlord Association and various committees through out the tri-county area.
