Bud Clark Commons

In 2009, the City of Portland secured critical funding and broke ground for the Bud Clark Commons, a cornerstone of the City’s 10 Year Plan to End Homelessess. The Commons is an innovative partnership between the Portland Housing Bureau, Home Forward (formerly known as the Housing Authority of Portland) Transition Projects, Inc., and Multnomah County. The center will provide vital resources, shelter, and housing placement services to individuals and couples experiencing homelessness in Portland, and it will be the first LEED Platinum building of its kind in the country.
