Event description
Celebrate and Invest in Colonia Unidad, Woodburn's new community with 44 units of farmworker and workforce housing.

About this Event

Unidad means Unity! Time to Party! Please RSVP!

New residents, friends and supporters of FHDC gather to celebrate the years of work and thought that has gone into building Colonia Unidad, a project bringing together farmworkers and low-income rural families into a unified housing community.

This event is also a benefit and dinner to raise funds for services and programming in Woodburn. Bring your family and friends, and sponsor a resident! Registration includes dinner from Woodburn's Casa de Caldos, wine, beer, ponche, a traditional Aztec blessing, speaking by State Representative Teresa Alonso Leon, Chelsea Bunch from Oregon Housing & Community Services, and members of our community. We'll close out the night with live music by Trio Romance and an opportunity to welcome and invest in residents of Woodburn's latest inclusive housing project.
