CHNW is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to serve and support students. We’re fiscally responsible, but we’re not bound to the bottom line or a revenue-driven board of directors. Our not-for-profit status enables us to leverage government and local tax incentives – such as Oregon state-issued bonds – to create housing arrangements that benefit both students and our partner organizations. This unique funding access also allows us to minimize the financial burden for our institutional partners.
Since 1969, we have developed affiliation and marketing arrangements with universities and colleges in Portland and Corvallis, Oregon, including Portland State University, Oregon State University, Pacific Northwest College of Art, the Art Institute of Portland, Oregon Health and Sciences University, Portland Community College, and more.
We’re always happy to explore new partnerships with post-secondary institutions. Please contact info @ chnw.org to learn more.
