Portland Delta House
Topic: Introduction

JUNE KEY DELTA HOUSE, dedicated to the energy and foresight of Portland, Oregon educator June Key, is to be a Living Building, a "green" building project developed by African American women, that will provide a community center that sustains the needs of the multi-cultural neighborhood it serves, encouraging sound and healthy social, educational, artistic, economic, and environmental development and awareness.

The property on which the completed community center, Portland Delta House, will stand is owned (without debt) by Portland Alumnae Chapter Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and Piedmont Rose Connection, Inc. The site, to be a renovation of a standard 1960's style concrete and metal building gas station with asphalt pavement, will serve as a demonstration project highlighting how a small, nonprofit organization uses sustainable building practices to create a "living building."
