AFFORDABLE APARTMENTS : PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE HOUSING FOR VETERANS
PDX // OR
Sometimes you just need to find somewhere with people that get you, a place to feel sustained as you sort out the challenges of life. The Breitung Building is the kind of place that lets veterans rest easy knowing they have a place to call home in a cool modern apartment; with supportive community all around. Friendships are formed here with others sharing similar struggles – you can sit in the community room and have a cup of coffee with new friends - or make your way to the nearby rose garden for a bit of exercise and head clearing. With support from Do Good Multnomah, this is a place to find rest, healing, and the path forward in a context of safety.
+ WHY IT MATTERS
So many things can take a person down, but a supportive community can help lift you back up. For many veterans, finding a place not just to call home but to really be at home in and connect with yourself, the community, and even all of the public spaces of the city is transformative. This is a place where stepping out of survival mode to find peace and potential actually becomes possible.
