Open: Housing

Open: Housing is a platform, a network, and a set of strategies aimed at strengthening the information ecosystem that supports civic engagement around housing issues. It encourages collaboration to identify, curate, and share data, information, and stories that illuminate Portland’s housing crisis and create a climate for real solutions to emerge.

The website features stories from local Portland media outlets including KBOO, KGW, KOIN, OPB, Pamplin Media Group, Portland Business Journal, Street Roots, and Willamette Week, as well as contributing bloggers Mike Anderson of Portland for Everyone and Thacher Schmid of Poor for a Minute.

Other partners include Journalism that Matters, Oregon Humanities, Portland State University’s Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies, Portland Community Media and The Jackson Foundation.
