Historic Parkrose

Historic Parkrose is committed to increasing social equity, economic opportunity, and safety in Portland’s Parkrose district. We make change happen by fostering collaboration between our diverse neighbors, local businesses, and property owners.

Historic Parkrose centers our district residents in economic development, to create bright opportunities to live, shop, invest in Parkrose.

“Dear Historic Parkrose,

We appreciate your generosity. My students will benefit greatly from having these items that allow for touch screen access. This type of technology has opened doors for many people with disabilities for greater access to communication, choice-making, tracking of time, and organization. Thank you for helping bring these tools to our students.”
With gratitude,

Mrs. Gutierrez, local teacher
