Overview

Providence Emilie House is a high-quality, supportive housing program founded by the Sisters of Providence and owned and managed by Providence Health and Services. Designed and built especially for low-income, aging seniors, our non-smoking, pet friendly building features 40 private apartments with all the comforts of home. Each apartment includes full kitchen amenities with a dining area, a private bathroom with tub or walk-in shower, built-in storage and an open floor plan. Upgraded flooring, stainless steel appliances and ceiling fans reflect our high standard of living. Shared laundry facilities and welcoming community spaces are available to all residents.

Located in Portland’s North Tabor neighborhood, Providence Emilie House is convenient to shopping, restaurants, Providence Portland Medical Center and major public transit lines to other parts of the city. Our mature landscaping and well manicured grounds provide an attractive, green setting. Controlled building access and emergency call systems in every apartment provide additional safety and security for all residents.

Providence places a high value in supporting individual residents and creating a vibrant community by providing raised garden beds, a shared computer lab with internet access, a gathering space for resident groups and a wide variety of scheduled activities including educational and recreational programming. Full time staff is available to accommodate resident needs. Our service coordinator can help residents identify and access local resources and services, and can advocate for residents who need assistance.

Providence Emilie House receives an operating subsidy from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD requirements state that applicants for housing at Providence Emilie House must be either at least 62 years of age or mobility impaired at the time of application.
