Colonia Unidad Receives Warm Welcome

On Friday, September 11th, residents and supporters of FHDC gathered to celebrate Colonia Unidad in Woodburn. The project which brings 44-units of affordable housing to the community was truly collaborative effort –– from the state, county and city levels, to the private and philanthropic sectors. The community is a beautiful property in an open setting with plenty of space for kids to play, families to relax, and visitors to admire.

Thanks to all who made the evening possible, and for all of our sponsors and donors who helped us raise funds for resident services!
