About Motherhouse

The Motherhouse at Baxter Woods is the first building in the multi-phase redevelopment of the Sisters of Mercy site located in Portland’s Deering Center Neighborhood. Originally built in 1906, the Motherhouse at 605 Stevens Avenue was closed in 2005 due to a dwindling number of Sisters living at the nearly 116,000 square foot property located on 18.98 acres.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.

Motherhouse is managed by Developers Collaborative.
