For over 20 years, Portland Community Reinvestment Initiatives has reinvested in Portland’s neighborhoods, preserved their diversity and provided tools to help low-income Portland families and individuals achieve stability and self-sufficiency.  From our original task of helping people who were unknowingly swindled out of their homes, PCRI has come a long way.  Still, the challenges are constant—as is our presence as an anchor of stable, diverse and livable Portland neighborhoods.


PCRI owns more than 700 units of affordable rental housing, primarily in the north and northeast communities of Portland. Below market rate rentals allow families and individuals the chance for stability in their lives, without the worry of constantly moving.
