When Oregon Community Foundation and FHDC Spend a Day Together

“It was a pleasure to learn more about the meaningful way you support farm workers and their families. We were inspired and impressed by your staff’s knowledge, empathy, and passion.” -Colbey Carpenter, Oregon Community Foundation

In April, FHDC had its fair share of visitors interested in learning about the ways in which FHDC collaborates to build assets and community. We were happy to host the Oregon Community Foundation and 13 of their staff to:

  • Tour an affordable housing comunity
  • Discuss how FHDC’s work relates to the Opportunity Gap in Oregon
  • Learn how FHDC’s formation of Evolve is creating jobs and opportunities in the stable field of property management
  • Where FHDC is heading in the future

The purpose of the learning tour was to share how FHDCs work is impacting rural communities, low-income communities, and communities of color in Oregon. OCF joined us at Colonia Jardines in Silverton, OR to learn about the unique challenges, characteristics and opportunities of our newest farmworker housing community. The result: more work to be done via shared knowledge and collaboration!
