I believe that a successful approach must include a continuum of housing options and ensure equitable access for communities of color. NAYA Family Center seeks to provide a range of housing resources that reflect the needs of Portland’s urban Native American community. This includes anti-poverty services such as rent and utility assistance, support services for survivors of domestic violence, affordable rental housing and homeownership education and coaching.
Portland's Native American Community is underrepresented in rates of homeownership and overrepresented in experiencing homelessness and over-crowded, substandard housing. Culturally specific organizations can offer successful ways to address the barriers to accessing housing resources that are often experienced by communities of color.
