Four Oregon healthcare organizations have committed $2.68 million to help fund an affordable housing complex in Eugene.

The 51-unit apartment building will go up on the north side of Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard, across the street from Autzen Stadium. The site is adjacent to Lane County Behavioral Health. Chronically homeless individuals will become tenants and receive round the clock support services.

Jennifer Jordan is with Kaiser Permanente Northwest. They contributed $500-thousand dollars toward the permanent housing project.

Kaiser Permanente Northwest

Kaiser Permanente Northwest entered the Lane County health care market in 2016. The medical provider now serves about 5,000 members in the Eugene-Springfield area as well as over 17-hundred Medicaid patients.

Kaiser recently announced plans to expand and relocate to a new medical office in north Eugene.

Spokeswoman Kimberly Mounts says the space will be about six times larger than their current office and will offer new services like on-site labs and imaging.

Kaiser Permenante officially joined Eugene's healthcare community in January, and since then, the provider has given $290,000 in grants to local non-profits, including two Latino programs.
