Affordable, Accessible Housing
QUAD Inc. has developed and operates four independent living apartment buildings that include Myers Court Apartments, Burnside Station Apartments, Central Station Apartments (all in Multnomah County), and Rolling Green Apartments (in Washington County) serving 85 low-income, disabled residents and their families.
The studio, one and two-bedroom apartments are specially designed for the wheelchair user. Accessible design features include accessible, roll-under counters, appliances, sinks, roll-in showers, open floor plans and a variety of features specifically for people in wheelchairs. Buildings also offer community rooms, outdoor areas, emergency assistance, advanced fire and life safety systems and a high level of safety and security.
QUAD Inc. is a provider of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rent-subsidized housing, following strict regulatory requirements for eligibility, fair housing, facility management and physical plant maintenance, all monitored by HUD. People qualifying for QUAD Inc. housing pay only 30% of their adjusted gross income for rent (less than $150 per month for most residents) and also receive a utility allowance which further lowers their rent.
The majority of applicants seek to move from rehabilitation facilities, nursing homes, adult foster care or from their parent’s homes into QUAD Inc.’s affordable, accessible apartments. For most residents, QUAD Inc. facilities offer the first opportunity to live in their own homes, make daily lifestyle choices for themselves, work or volunteer in the community and pursue educational goals.
Other organizations in our community provide low-income housing and limited supportive services people with disabilities, but no other organization provides QUAD Inc.’s unique combination of shared, non-medical attendant care and affordable, accessible housing designed specifically to foster independence and allow for personal choice in everyday living.
