Youth + Family
Supporting Children and Families
Hacienda CDC serves approximately 360 youth through three major programs: Portland Niños, Expresiones, and SUN Youth Advocacy. Our programs offer a variety of important education and social support services to children from birth to 8th grade. We provide children with academic support, cultural enrichment, and health services that help them reach their full potential.
Many of our families also live in Hacienda CDC’s housing developments, which is why we are proud to provide our Resident Services program under our Youth & Family Services umbrella. Hacienda’s Resident Services program focuses on bridging the gap between property management and residents, reducing barriers to stable housing, and increasing the social capital of our communities.
