Our Home, Inclusive Community Collaborative works to Promote, Support and Develop Inclusive and Diverse Communities. Our flagship community, Our Home – Cathedral Park is Portland, Oregon's first inclusive and diverse, co-housing inspired community with a variety of home ownership opportunities for individuals and families of diverse abilities, ages and income levels. The project is being supported by OHICC and developed by Urban Development + Partners, a Portland development firm with extensive experience in multi-family construction and co-housing development.
Our Home – Cathedral Park will be in one of the most desirable locations in the city; near the base of the iconic St. John’s Bridge in the Cathedral Park neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. Located just minutes from downtown, this community will be near public transportation and walkable to many amenities, including the beautiful Cathedral Park.

Our purpose is to work with local partners to create diverse pocket neighborhood communities consisting of families who have the opportunity for home-ownership and include individuals often seen as ‘at-risk’ — elders, people who experience disability and people below median income. Our Home communities will be based on strengths, interests and shared values not deficits and needs.
