Engagement Updates Around FHDC Communities

We consider our community headquarters a campus where groups and individuals can visit, learn and engage. We believe that sharing knowledge, skills (and food!) bring our communities together and inspire curiosity and incite positive change.

True to our vision, this Spring, FHDC’s community of residents have been busy engaging in focus groups, group meetings, health workshops, leadership gatherings, and more.


Colonia Jardines is one of our smallest yet most engaged communities. Recently the Executive Director introduced new resident services staff and listened to residents and shared plans for Girl Scouts, ESL classes and other programming opportunities.

One way community members enjoy learning about FHDC is through learning tours. FHDC has recently hosted OregonAsk, Meyer Memorial Trust, Legacy Health, and others. Recent visitors pictured above include students Veronica and Maria from the Latinx Heritage Club at George Fox University and Published Author and UCLA professor, Otto Santa Ana, who was visiting town to speak at the University.

We were very please to host Mr. Santa Ana and student who visited with a deep interest in learning about the history of farmworker families and the difference between on-site farm housing and FHDC’s community built housing that provides a pathway for deeper community integration and success.

As a result of their visit, George Fox University made a generous donation to support our work in developing affordable housing and supportive community services.
