Northwest Housing Alternatives’ mission is to create opportunity through housing. NHA provides affordable housing options for families, seniors and people with special needs across Oregon. NHA also provides rapid re-housing and stabilization services through our HomeBase program.

Home is a place of safety and retreat, a place where family and community can grow. For some Oregonians with low incomes, having a place to call home is out of reach. Low wages or fixed incomes combined with the high cost of housing forces these families to choose between rent, utilities, nutritious food, medications and other basic necessities. NHA works to alleviate those pressures for low-income families and provide new opportunities through quality affordable housing.
