Grand Opening Ceremony for the Dorothy Lemelson House & New Meadows Program!

It was a great turnout for the emotionally heart-warming Grand Opening ceremony of the Dorothy Lemelson House! Bridge Meadows and New Avenues for Youth have joined forces to create this innovative housing community for transition age foster youth. Leveraging Bridge Meadows intergenerational healing community and New Avenues for Youth self-sufficiency and life skills services expertise, they have combined resources to build and operate the Dorothy Lemelson House & New Meadows Program, a trauma-informed housing and life-skills program.

Located just one block away from the Bridge Meadows North Portland housing community, the Dorothy Lemelson House will offer former foster care youth a safe place to live while they pursue education and job training, and practice and learn self-sufficiency skills.This new community, made up of 10 studios and 5 one-bedroom apartments offers youth the benefits of intergenerational care and support.

Thanks to the people of Carleton Hart Architecture PC, all of our subcontractors and suppliers and the WALSH team of Ross Cornelius, Craig Leonnig, Bryan Ware and Caitlin B. Kelley!
