Habitat works with qualified, low-income families to help them realize the dream of owning their own home.

Building Homes, Building Lives.
This month, Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East breaks ground on Glisan Gardens, located at 165th and northeast Glisan Street, in the Rockwood neighborhood.

The City of Gresham helped Habitat purchase the large 1.64-acre lot, along with Housing and Urban Development HOME and SHOP program funds. The site will become 25 energy efficient homes to local, hardworking families who build and then buy their homes with a 0%-interest mortgage.

Former Corbett superintendent and charter director will speak to board
A public hearing on a proposed charter school in the Reynolds School District is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 24, at Fairview City Hall’s chambers.

Bob Dunton, the former director of Corbett Charter School and former superintendent of the Corbett School District, will give a presentation on The Egan School, Rockwood.

The proposed Rockwood lease agreement hinges on charter approval from the Reynolds Schools District, where the property lies.

On Wednesday, the public will have an opportunity to comment during the charter hearing. Documents on proposed charter may be found at www.reynolds.k12.or.us/district/school-board.

On Oct. 8, the board is expected to vote on the proposal at its board meeting

New K-12 Charter School Coming to Rockwood, Project To Begin April 2014, Completion 2015

Starting in April, demolition will begin to make way for construction of a new three-story, 53,000 square foot building for the Sunrise Rockwood Charter School at 19034 SE Stark Street in West Gresham.

The new 700 student K-12 school will have twenty-eight classrooms, a student commons, administrative offices, auditorium, food services, plus covered and open outdoor play areas.

Rockwood Community Development Corporation, the project's developer, says the Corbett Charter School Association has agreed on a lease to create the new school, which will border E. Burnside and S.E. Stark Street along the MAX Blue Line.

The success of the nationally acclaimed Corbett Charter School, which shares school buildings inside the Corbett School District, has created a waiting list of new students (mostly from east Multnomah county) wanting to enroll in the highly successful program. High demand and lack of space is one of the reasons for building the new school.
