Northwest Housing Alternatives (NHA) develops and manages affordable housing for Oregonians earning low incomes, including seniors, families and people with special needs. NHA's Resident Services program works to keep NHA residents stable in their housing and connected to their community.
Residents of NHA’s Autumn Park Apartments, an affordable housing community in Wilsonville, participated in two Equity Stories photography workshops during the summer of 2013. The workshops coincided with a community-wide barbeque and ice cream social. Workshop participants – many of whom were children – photographed and interviewed their neighbors as well as shared their own perspectives about life in Autumn Park, the broader community, and the challenges and opportunities they experience.
