About

Why Evolve?

Evolve provides training, paid internships and opportunities for low-income families and communities of color while providing exceptional services in property management to the community. We are different in our style of managing affordable and market rate housing and commercial properties in Oregon.  Evolve is unique for the following reasons:

Evolve’s nonprofit status means that we can join our Community Partners in a mission-focused and people-first approach in a way that a for-profit firm simply cannot.

A core function of Evolve is to provide a real-world training platform enabling low-income individuals and minorities of color to launch careers in a growing industry to create upward mobility and personal development.

History

Evolve is a sister organization of Farmworker Housing Development Corporation (FHDC), a culturally specific community development organization founded in 1991 in the Willamette Valley, Oregon to improve the lives of farmworkers and their families through affordable housing, social services, education, and economic development.  FHDC now serves a linguistically and culturally diverse resident community in agricultural and rural communities statewide.

FHDC’s emphasis on sustainable housing development to support the success of resident families led them to form Evolve Property Management and Workforce Development in October, 2015.

Leadership

Evolve’s leadership is founded in strong relationships with local communities, state agencies and local businesses. Evolve is led by a talented board of directors, young and driven leaders and long standing, dedicated employees.  The leaders and team Evolve bring a deep commitment to equity and job creation in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.

Commitment to Success

Evolve combines the rich understanding of the property management industry with the cultural needs of residents and tenants.   Evolve  has created a management platform that features cutting edge technology and property management software.  The result is property management that is fully scalable to meet the needs of each resident or tenant in each community, while at the same time driving portfolio performance and long-term sustainability.
