Envisioning a community where residents can live with easy walkability, PeaceHealth Medical Community donated eleven lots of land to Mercy Housing Northwest to be developed as workforce housing. The new 69-unit apartment building, Columbia Heights, is located in Vancouver, Washington, two blocks from PeaceHealth hospital. With the mission to provide opportunities for low-income families, half of the units are reserved for families earning up to 30% of the Area Median Income (AMI), and half are reserved for families earning up to 50% AMI.
Columbia Heights Affordable Apartments represents the community coming together to provide housing opportunities for 69 families experiencing various barriers to equitable housing. In one year, these units will represent over 25,000 hours of housing stability for 69 families.
