Crandall Group Donates 5-Unit Townhome Complex to UGM for Single Parents 

 

Beaverton, Ore., - Union Gospel Mission recently received a generous donation from the Crandall Group of a 5-unit townhome complex worth $1.5 Million. The townhomes will provide affordable housing to single parents who are coming out of homelessness, addiction, and abuse. 

A ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the housing complex will take place Thursday, September 23rd at 2 pm at 3400 SW 125th Ave Beaverton, OR 97005. 

Mark and Angela Crandall and Crandall Group made this generous donation of brand-new housing to help with the growing need for affordable housing in the Beaverton area. Safe and affordable housing is a huge challenge to find for people who are transitioning out of homelessness, recovery, or escaping domestic violence. For single-parent families, the challenge is even greater. 

“Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Crandall Group, Union Gospel Mission has a powerful tool in our toolbox to help single parents and their children transition to a life of self-reliance. These townhomes give them a running start toward independence,” says Jason Christensen UGM Executive Director. 

The vision for this housing complex is to support single parents by not only providing safe, affordable housing but also to provide a supportive community with other families who are working to overcome the challenges they faced due to addiction, abuse, and homelessness.
