ROSE Community Development is dependent on the support of the community in every capacity. We need your help – now more than ever – to keep ROSE strong as we address the affordable housing crisis that families in southeast Portland are experiencing. Please consider making a gift this holiday season. Whether a financial or in-kind donation (large or small), your support matters!

ROSE is rising to meet this challenge. Our real estate development pipeline is bigger than ever. It offers more housing than we’ve done before. For the first time, these new developments include commercial space, community facilities and mixed-income market rate housing. ROSE’s goals for the new year include:

  • Woody Guthrie Place at SE 91st and Reedway, which will include ROSE’s first mixed-income market rate housing to the Lents Town Center. This housing will support Baby Booster, which is part of a national initiative working to support healthy babies.
  •  Jade Apartments and Community Center, a proposal to acquire a Metro property at SE 82nd and Division for a transit oriented development that includes affordable housing, retail and community space.
  •  Arleta Park, a proposal to the Portland Housing Bureau for a mixed-use project at SE 72nd and Foster, across the street from the Portland Mercado.

Neighborhood ownership is what sets ROSE apart from other community development organizations. Whether it’s support for our residents or a multi-million dollar construction project, everything we do is focused here in outer southeast Portland. Please make a contribution today online at or by mailing a check to 5215 SE Duke St. Portland, OR 97206. Thank you for supporting our local neighborhood organization – ROSE Community Development.
