Resident Assets Coordinator | ROSE Community Development

ROSE Community Development is dedicated to Revitalizing Outer SouthEast Portland neighborhoods, through the development of good homes & economic opportunities. We are rooted in the belief that affordable housing gives people the opportunity to build better lives. But since our first project — rehabilitating a single house in Lents for a low-income family in 1992 — our work to revitalize our community has extended far beyond housing. We are improving economic conditions in our neighborhoods and giving people the tools and the support they need to improve their lives.
