Hello, Gateway!

Let’s celebrate our new anchor office and housing community!

Hello, Gateway! A community welcome and grand opening celebration. May 25, Gateway Discovery Park.

Join us on Wednesday afternoon, May 25, for Hello, Gateway!, a community welcome and grand opening celebration at our new location next to Gateway Discovery Park. We’ll enjoy shared company outdoors with music, fun activities for kids, presentations, tours, and tasty drinks and snacks! After two long years apart, we’re really looking forward to gathering with you.

👋 Don’t miss this one! Add this free event to your calendar now. 👋

Together we’ll celebrate the opening of The Nick Fish housing community and our anchor office and service center. We will also honor the legacy of Nick Fish, the late City of Portland commissioner, and his impactful dedication to affordable housing and green-space access in East Portland. Patricia Schechter, Nick Fish’s wife, will share a few words, and Sabina Haque, local artist and East Portland historian, will share her knowledge of place with us, along with an inspiring collage we commissioned to honor both Nick Fish and the history of the site.

Covid-19 permitting, we’ll offer tours of our new office space and the public areas of The Nick Fish apartment community. If an apartment is vacant, we’ll take a look!

Plus, we’ll unveil our new brand and chat about what it means for the next phase of our organization. Swing by to get a first look!

Come one, come all – no RSVP needed. ASL interpretation will be provided. Rain or shine, we can’t wait to get to know our Gateway neighbors and spend time with residents of The Nick Fish housing community, friends and family of Nick Fish, and partners and community members who helped make this shared vision a reality. This free, family-friendly event will have fun activities for kids, and the park has a playground, skateboarding area, and limited seating for picnic blankets. All are welcome! We hope to see you there.
