Housing Assistance Programs

Housing Rights and Resources Center

The Housing Rights and Resources Center (HRRC) works with tenants and landlords to protect the housing rights of our community and educate Clackamas County on housing issues. The HRRC provides general housing information and referral regarding landlord-tenant, fair housing, and other housing-related issues. The center can assist community members in finding lower cost housing in Clackamas County.

For people experiencing homelessness, Social Services offers a variety of small programs that include housing and support services to help individuals and families who wish to establish themselves in permanent housing and achieve greater self reliance. HRRC is the main access point for the Annie Ross House and SON shelters for homeless families, and also provides referrals to other shelters and homeless housing programs throughout the Portland metropolitan area.

HRRC is a partnership between Clackamas County Social Services, Clackamas County Community Development, Legal Aid Services of Oregon and the Fair Housing Council of Oregon.

Rent Well

Rent Well is a tenant readiness program that helps people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness find and keep housing. Participants attend a 15-hour training program over six weeks designed to provide tools to address rental screening barriers, such as evictions, poor credit, and criminal history, to obtain permanent, affordable housing. Upon completion, participants receive a Rent Well Graduation Certificate that is recognized by many landlords.
