Patton Home

Patton Home
Patton Home has served the Albina neighborhood of north Portland for over 100 years. Established in 1887, Patton Home originally served as a retirement home, offering shelter and care for those in need.

During the late 1990's, EMO acquired this historic site. After a $6 million renovation, EMO initially operated Patton Home as a licensed Residential Care Facility. Patton Home has now transitioned to serve a specialized drug- and alcohol-free, low-income population in a neighborhood single-room occupancy (SRO) facility.

Occupying a full city block, Patton Home offers housing to 63 low-income residents. It is fully ADA compliant. Each resident’s room comes with a small refrigerator, bed, chest of drawers and end table. Microwaves are provided in the communal dining room. In addition, Patton Home contains well-appointed common rooms and gathering spots, including a sunroom, library, cozy TV room, communal dining room, and private spaces for entertaining family and friends. There is a spacious, shady veranda for socializing and a well-used Community Garden on the grounds.

If you know of someone who is need of alcohol-and drug-free housing, please call the Patton Home at (503) 281-1844 or email The Patton Home is located at 4619 N. Michigan, Portland.

The Rodney Page Community Ministries Center
Created through a broad community campaign in honor of the Rev. Dr. Rodney Page, the Rodney Page Community Ministries Center occupies the third floor of the historic Patton Home. The Center provides office space for local community groups and organizations, most of whom offer direct services to Patton Home residents, as well as the community at large. The Center is named after Page, who served as executive director of EMO from 1974 until his retirement in 1996.

Office space is now available in the remodeled Rodney Page Community Ministries Center in the historic Patton Home, located on N. Michigan Avenue in Portland’s flourishing Mississippi Avenue neighborhood. We are looking for small non-profits or individual practices focused on social change and equitable community development. The space features:

  • Offices averaging 280 square feet, including storage
  • Rent approximately $1/square-foot per month
  • Utilities included in rent
  • Forced air heat and air conditioning
  • Some offices have downtown views’
  • Workroom
  • Break-room with mini-kitchen
  • Easy freeway access
  • Ample street parking
  • Separate street entrance with elevator access
