Community Partner Overview
Hacienda CDC was formed in 1986 to provide necessary housing and supportive services in a low-income, predominantly-Latino community. At that time, NE Portland’s Cully neighborhood was home to the largest Latino population in Oregon. Since then, Hacienda CDC has built or renovated nine low-income housing properties providing 381 safe and stable housing units and homes for more than 1500 individuals in North Portland and Molalla.
Hacienda CDC has expanded its reach with programs in economic development, homeownership support, and Youth & Family programs, all of which are offered to both its residents and the broader community. They have grown to become Oregon’s largest Latino-led, Latino-serving housing organization and are highly respected within the community.
Utilizing the space available in their new housing developments, Hacienda is seeking to expand their capacity to support more families and children in their Portland Niños program. This aligns well with SVP Portland’s focus on early childhood education and provides a unique opportunity to gain experience having preschool environments connected to residential locations. Hacienda CDC is excited about the opportunity to work with us and gain assistance in the capacity building necessary to fulfill their vision.
