Housing Development Corporation of Northwest Oregon (formerly of
The mission of the Housing Development Corporation (HDC) is to stabilize and empower current and former farmworkers and their families by developing and managing service-enriched, affordable housing in the communities of northwest Oregon.
The Housing Development Corporation is a twenty-four year old non-profit community development corporation dedicated to providing supportive housing and services to agricultural workers in a five-county area of northwest Oregon. The HDC recently expanded its mission to serve former farmworkers, which includes many Latinos working in low-wage jobs. As the state’s oldest and largest community development corporation addressing farmworker housing, the HDC now owns and operates 233 multi-family affordable rental units in four communities, serving nearly 1,300 farmworkers, and our newest project, Adelante Familias, will nearly double our housing units. HDC has built and sold five lease-to-own homes to farmworker families. Our on-site Community Learning Centers offer free and low-cost services to our residents and neighbors, including: information and referral to health and social services, workforce development and linkage to job resources, enrollment in the Oregon Health Plan, and youth recreation programs, among others.
