The Congregate Housing Services Program helps eligible residents with daily activities.

Independent Living for Seniors and Adults with Disabilities

The Congregate Housing Services Program (CHSP) is designed to assist seniors and adults with disabilities to live independently in their own apartments. It provides services and assistance including meals, housekeeping, personal care, companionship and case management.

CHSP began in 1981 with a single meal server dispensing meals. The program now has five locations, with meals delivered daily, serving nearly 100 people. In 2006, Impact Northwest was awarded the contract to manage the Congregate Housing Services Program in cooperation with Home Forward and Multnomah County Aging & Disability Services, which is funded by Housing & Urban Development and the Senior & Disabled Services Division of Oregon.
