2-4 bedrooms

Helensview isour 21-home site at NE 64th Ave. & Killingsworth Ct. Helensview will offer families and their children an affordable housing opportunity in Cully, our Neighborhood Revitalization focus neighborhood.

Helensview was originally the site of a 40-home project by former nonprofit HOST. When the recession hit, HOST was unable to complete their work, and half the lot sat empty. Habitat stepped in and purchased the remaining land with the intention of completing the rest of the 20 homes for hardworking, low-income families in the Portland area.

Habitat’s efforts in the Cully neighborhood will provide an opportunity for residents most likely to be displaced by gentrification to stay in their neighborhood. We have been working with neighborhood organizations to encourage renters to consider applying for the Homeownership Program, utilizing this great opportunity to move residents up the housing continuum towards homeownership. Habitat also hires Cully-based tradesmen and businesses during the construction process whenever possible.
