The Joyce, to be developed by Community Partners for Affordable Housing (CPAH), is a rehabilitation project that will provide 66 units of permanent supportive housing, located at 322 SW 11th Ave. in downtown Portland.
“The need for housing has never been greater. CPAH is grateful to all our partners who have come together to preserve a building with historic relevance and provide housing to people who need it most,” said Rachael Duke, Executive Director of CPAH. “We are committed to turning the former Joyce Hotel, which was known as housing of last resort, into a place of opportunity, hope, and healing.”
The Joyce is a historic building that when renovated will include: 66 efficiently designed single room occupancy affordable housing units in four stories, an elevator, a community room for on-site activities, and a services corridor where residents will be able to connect with on-site supportive services, including wellness activities, care coordination, and crisis intervention. The Joyce will serve 66 formerly homeless individuals, working in partnership with Cascadia Behavioral Health, Cascade AIDS Project, and Native American Rehabilitation Association NW to provide services. Construction will be completed in spring of 2023.
