Saint Francis Park on southeast twelfth avenue in Portland, which has served as a haven for many people in the area, has been sold to Catholic Charities.
The non-profit group will bulldoze the park and construct a housing development for low-income Portlanders in its place.

The park is the only one between Buckman and the river, and many local residents are still hoping to save the park from the bulldozers.

Catholic Charities plans to reserve 25 units for women transitioning out of homelessness or abusive homes through the organization's assistance programs. 17:14 minutes (15.77 MB)
