Home for the Haven Campaign

Project Summary

“Home for the Haven” is a $3 million campaign centered around our new facility, enabling Rose Haven to build its dream home, bring guests back indoors, reestablish programs, and increase capacity to welcome and serve more community members.

New Long-term Lease in NW Portland

In February 2021, Rose Haven secured a long-term lease from friend and neighbor World Cup Coffee at 1740 NW Glisan in Portland, just 1.5 blocks from our current location. This building provides us with the perfect infrastructure to create the dream “Home for the Haven”. Gensler, a worldwide design and architecture firm with a Portland office, will be our pro bono project manager, designer, and architect donating more than 1,200 hours of service to Rose Haven’s relocation. Gensler has created a plan that provides our guests, staff, and volunteers the ideal layout to rebuild the community and improve lives.

  • Building Features

    Our new building provides 9,700 sq ft of programming and operations space, tripling our current footprint. Additionally, it hosts 2,000 sq ft of basement storage and a loading dock ideal for donation drop-offs and organization. Most importantly it brings Rose Haven services to street level, promoting dignity for guests seeking support. Guests will be received in a welcoming entrance with a waiting area for new intakes. Increased onsite safety features will include a secure entrance and as well as ample space for proper airflow and social distancing. Individual reception areas for wellness programs, guest services and medical support will help alleviate crowding, expedite services and increase accessibility.

  • Community Benefit

    Rose Haven provides support not only to individuals but to our community as a whole. Each day our programs will bring more than 100 women and children from the streets of Portland into our haven where they will be supported in their efforts to become healthy and productive members of our community. Our new facility will allow us to play an even more important role in reducing waste and cleaning up our city by providing access for guests to onsite laundry facilities, recycling, and dumpsters. Additionally, we will provide guests with onsite day lockers to safely guard their possessions rather than leaving them unattended, and often stolen, on our city streets. And we will continue to provide financial support for off-site storage units during transitional periods. With our food gleaning program, we will continue to help reduce local restaurant waste and redistribute unwanted food through our Nutrition Program. Rose Haven is also committed to the upcycling of clothing in our shop and through partner redistribution programs.
