New Home Forward Partnership
Through a new partnership with the Portland Housing Bureau, Home Forward will provide Asset Management services for Bond projects on behalf the Housing Bureau, including property management oversight, financial management, and overseeing the physical condition of the buildings.
“Capitalizing on the core competencies of another public entity and longtime partner is an efficient, cost-effect way to maximize Bond resources and reach our goals,” said Portland Housing Bureau interim director Shannon Callahan. “Home Forward’s experience and expertise in managing and operating affordable housing will help us ensure we are providing healthy environments for the individuals and families who will live in Bond properties.”
Home Forward manages a portfolio of more than 6,000 units of affordable housing, including housing with supportive services.
“Home Forward has been a partner of the City on the Bond from the very beginning, and we are happy to be continuing this partnership to make these homes a reality,” said Michael Buonocore, Executive Director of Home Forward.
