Bridge Meadows Opens Doors in Redmond

comment

Based in Portland, Oregon, Bridge Meadows is an intergenerational community that provides housing and alternatives to foster care. The newly opened Redmond location is its third such development in Oregon, after the two established in the Portland area.

The new development responds to Central Oregon's critical need for safe, affordable housing and permanency focused alternatives to foster care.

Included in the development is an intergenerational community building open to the broader neighborhood and 36 total residential units, including 10 family townhomes and 26 elder apartments. Adoptive families and elders will begin to move into their new homes in November.

Bridge Meadows, known for its innovation in the realm of aging, foster care and housing design, was recently featured in The New York Times.

In support of the project, Bridge Meadows has secured resources from Oregon Housing and Community Services, The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, The Collins Foundation and the Quest Foundation, as well as the local Tennant Family Foundation, resulting in nearly $1.25 million raised to date.
