NHA’s most recent project, Pomeroy Place, is being built specifically to respond to the need for more affordable housing for extremely low-income veterans and their families.
When completed in the fall of 2017, Pomeroy Place will provide 20 units of new, safe, affordable housing for Washington County veterans and their families earning 30% or less of Washington County’s Area Median Income. The development will contain 5 one-bedroom units serving veterans who are transitioning from or at imminent risk of homelessness, as well as 10 two-bedroom and 5 three-bedroom units designated for veteran families with children.
Located in Washington County, Pomeroy Place is the result of a focused commitment among the following partners:
- Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS)
- US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
- Washington County Housing and Community Development
- Washington County Department of Housing Services
- Community Housing Fund
- Chase Bank
- US Department of Veterans Affairs
- Salvation Army Veterans and Family Center
- Sequoia Mental Health
Supportive case management and clinical services will be available to residents of Pomeroy Place through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) at the nearby Hillsboro Community Based Outpatient Clinic. NHA will also provide onsite Resident Services programming and coordination with VA staff to ensure the health and success of residents and their families. The development will include a community room intended for trainings, gatherings, and for use by NHA service partners, as well as a playground for children.
Pomeroy Place is named for Betty Pomeroy, a local Army veteran who has devoted decades to helping Washington County’s veterans and seniors.
