Bringing much needed affordable housing to our region, REACH is working hard to build and maintain over 800 homes over the next 3 - 5 years. Check back for more updates as these projects go from the drawing board to completion.
What in the world are Sunshine Squares?
They are an opportunity for staff to recognize other staff for a job well done, appreciation for extra help offered with a project or just a way to express your thanks.
In the mail room at the Moody office, there is a Sunshine Board where Sunshine Squares can be displayed for thirty days. After the thirty days has elapsed, the person who is named on the Sunshine Square will receive their recognition.
There are blank Sunshine Squares in an envelope on the Sunshine Board. You can also fill one out and email it to a coworker by clicking here.
Be sure to display it on the Board and the Sunshine Committee will email the staff member recognized to let them know they’ve received a small token of appreciation.

REACH develops buildings that provide Oregon and Washington families with safe, attractive, affordable homes, enabling residents to invest in their future. To date, we have developed and acquired 2,073 units of housing that are affordable, attractive, and built to last. In 1982, REACH began revitalization efforts in the neighborhoods of inner southeast Portland by buying and renovating single family homes. Our portfolio now includes new and renovated plexes, apartment buildings and mixed-use developments located across the City of Portland and Clark County Washington.
REACH has developed a wide range of properties including single-family rental homes, high-density apartment towers, affordable row houses for first-time buyers and historic apartment buildings. Building low-income housing that is both affordable and welcoming is an art and a science. It’s a journey filled with public meetings, lengthy negotiations, and complex financial transactions. REACH has a long and successful history of developing affordable homes for some of Portland’s neediest residents. Partnering with some of Portland’s leading architects and general contractors, REACH builds innovative multi-family projects that reflect neighborhood character and address the needs of the targeted population. Financing is provided through a combination of hard and soft debt from private and public sources, Low-income Housing Tax Credits, and grant funding.
