Community Housing: part of Villebois' commitment to diversity.
Villebois is a complete, diverse, and sustainable community — one that reflects and complements the area’s rich history. In 1999, the Oregon Legislative Assembly passed a bill providing for the sale and redevelopment of this property, a former state mental health facility, into a vibrant urban village. The sale's proceeds, and up to 10 acres within the community, were used to create community housing for people with disabilities.
Over the past 25 years, a variety of community housing options have been developed throughout Oregon to accommodate approximately 4,000 people. At Villebois, the community housing will consist of homes where residents live "family-style" with assistance from on-site staff, and apartments where residents enjoy a greater level of independence in a supportive environment. All of the community housing at Villebois will be consistent with the design and size of surrounding properties, and will adhere to Homeowner Association standards for architecture and permitted uses.
Applicants for community housing must meet eligibility criteria and be able to live successfully in the village community. State-of-the-art support services will be available through Clackamas County Health Services.
